A modern, inspiring take on the old adage “the pen is mightier than the sword” comes in the form of this public service piece for Amnesty International directed by Onur Senturk, co-produced by and the studio One More for agency TBWA Paris. Pen is a CG film shot in motion capture that shows the potential power of signatures in the defense of human rights. Highlighting that the voice of a single person can bring about the birth of a social movement, the film concludes with the words “your signature is more powerful than you think” and includes the song Iron Sky by Paolo Nutini, which features the voice of Charlie Chaplin. Through powerful imagery, Amnesty International has encapsulated the essence of its primary objective--inspiring communities to defend their fundamental human rights.
