SHANGHAI What does the world look like for those who cannot see? Rejoice Franchise and Sweetshop have launched a new campaign that aims to inspire and empower the visually impaired community. Inspired by true stories from this community represented by three sight-impaired heroines, the campaign marks the first nationwide accessible ad for the visually impaired community and shows the beauty they experience in the world.
上海 近日，飘柔携手 Sweetshop 推出了新的广告作品，旨在唤醒更多人关注视障群体。该广告以三位视障女性为代表，讲述了她们在生活中对美的特殊体验，是全国首支针对视力障碍群体推出的无障碍广告。
The film, directed by Duanmu Kris, has an authentic documentary feel to it, and tells stories the three women with visual impaired challenges and the raw emotions that come along with them.
Featuring the three womens' individual stories, it first seems as if beauty has become unattainable to them. But as their stories unfold, we are reminded how they are in touch with the world, its beauty, and we see the world through the eyes of their imaginations.
“Throughout the brand communications project, Sweetshop co-created a magical experience for our visually impaired friends and for the whole crew. We were inspired by how rich and colorful their lives are. We spent months getting to know this community. Their hypersensitivity to beauty and imagination is impressive and enlightening for the audiences,” said Duanmu Kris, the director.
“Sweetshop 通过这个品牌传播项目为视障人士和整个团队共同创造了一个神奇的体验。” 导演端木说道。“他们的生活如此丰富多彩，这带给我们很多启发和灵感。我们花了几个月的时间来了解视障群体，他们对美的敏感和想象力对我们有很大的启发，美不等于‘好看’，通过走进视障朋友们，我们和观众一起感受了美的本质，接受了一次美的‘通识教育’。”
Duanmu added, “On set, the production team kept the technical aspects of the shoot hidden and to a minimum to create a safe and free environment that allowed the visually impaired women and kids to be their natural, beautiful selves. This also allowed me to capture their natural beauty.”
The campaign comprises a three-minute film, several cutdown versions, along with an accessible version. A documentary was released a few days after the shoot to create hype for the film that was to be launched later. The campaign also includes print work featuring the main talent shot alongside the film. This was all produced by Sweetshop Shanghai. The accessible version was co-produced by Shanghai Fanshiliu Cultural communication Co.,Ltd and Shanghai Yi’er Information Technology Co., Ltd with audio production support from Sweetshop.
In the first week of the campaign’s launch on China social media Weibo, it attracted broad interest and sparked discussions with more than 200 million views.
该广告在中国社交媒体微博上推出的第一周，浏览量超过 2 亿，引发了广泛的兴趣和众多讨论。
