Childline “Nobody is Normal” by Catherine Prowse

Aimed at teens struggling with body image, gender identity, and mental health issues, this disarming spot by Rowdy Films director Catherine Prowse and stop-motion veterans Tim Allen and Tobias Fouracre assures kids that “Nobody is Normal”.

Lucas Peon, chief creative officer at The Gate: “Working alongside [UK charity] Childline to help young people feel better in their own skin energized all of us at the agency, as well as our partners.

“It’s a campaign that speaks to children in a way that is natural to them. To walk through the usual walls these types of messages face, we needed an emotional story that intrigued people enough to pay attention and moved them enough to make them reflect and change their perspective.”
