Opening with intense slowed shots, accompanied by a building audio, it’s clear from the outset that the characters involved have one mission; to destroy cancer.
United in their fight, viewers get a real sense of anger and pain when the group begin to destroy the concrete lettering physically representing cancer in this powerful spot.
With debris filling the shot, Stephen Graham, the main voice of the piece, delivers a final blow to the structure, and there is a sense of finality to the short, with a final plea to join them in their efforts.
Mill Colourist Jim Bracher tells us why the project was particularly close to his heart, "I lost both my parents, a grandparent and numerous aunts and uncles to cancer, so I feel like I could easily be walking down that corridor with Stephen Graham at the beginning wielding my own baseball bat. It was a pleasure to give my time to grade this, and it gave me a warm sense of satisfaction, especially as it came out looking so nice.
The aim was to ensure the piece had impact, and to give it a cinematic polish. We kept the colours fairly stark, and plenty of roll-off to black in the shadows. I think it's quite exhilarating to watch.”
