Give the gift of hope

For their Christmas appeal, ChildFund International commissioned this fund-raising television commercial for broadcast in New Zealand.

Composer Bella Erikson created the soundtrack, and commissioned me to arrange and record the strings. It was an emotional project to work on, as our brief was to convey the true sadness of this desperate situation while underlining the hope viewers’ donations will bring.
