New campaign on Gen Z & tech

A new campaign by Saatchi & Saatchi is sticking up for the young people who get flak for being glued to their screens. Directed by Vincent Haycock, the film at the centre of the #WhatWeDoNext campaign offers an uplifting and compelling counter-argument to the theory that young people are out of touch due to social media and other tech. Instead, it illustrates the many ways young people are instigating positive change, oftentimes using technology to get the word out.

“We wanted to capture the spirit of this generation and show their collective voice harnessed by their use of social media. They are a generation that uses technology and social media to raise awareness and create communities,” Director Vincent Haycock said of the film. “We set out to make a film that felt honest to each of the characters’ world. Most of what you see is either their actual world or inspired very closely by who they are or what they represent. Billie’s is the voice of this generation, her music and words are very important to Gen Z. Having her narrate the film couldn’t have been a better choice.”
