Idris Elba Takes On Ebola with Africa United and M&C Saatchi
British actor Idris Elba and a host of international football stars launched a public awareness campaign to help halt West Africa's Ebola epidemic and recognize the health workers fighting the deadly disease. The worst Ebola outbreak on record has killed more than 6,800 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
The Africa United campaign directed by Tim Saccenti and produced by Ben Schneider at Green Door Pictures / Radical Media London broadcasts information on the disease to show the local population how to stop the spread of Ebola in French, English, Krio and other local languages. Three Wise Monkeys Director, Jon Dunleavy, animated the prevention sequences with Seti Setarah using simple graphical outlines that work without titles to illustrate symptoms and how to avoid contracting the disease. The film will be used in country and launched ahead of the African Cup of Nations draw in Equatorial Guinea's capital, Malabo.
