Don’t Panic has created a short film entitled On the Shoulders of Giants for the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, which is trying to raise awareness and lobby policy makers to show that women are still at risk of imprisonment if they have an abortion without the consent of two doctors.
The illustration takes an illustrative approach and shows milestones in the history of women’s rights. It is launched to coincide with the 97th anniversary of women getting the vote.
It was created by using laser cuts of hand drawn illustrations and was shot in one take. Purple paint runs behind the images on a single sheet of seven foot long paper to reveal their outline.
