I recently produced and directed a series of Spoken Word pieces for BBC Three. The videos cover a range of topics from debt to sexual harassment.
The first piece by Nicole Murphy debuted on BBC Three’s Facebook page and generated 400k views, 6.5k shares, and over 10k reactions. I think this shows that spoken word can be a powerful vehicle for messages on event the most serious topics.
The production was very small and extremely fast turnaround but that made it all the more fun to do. We shot 12 films in two days with the edit for the lot taking two weeks in total. Not bad at all.
