English Translation of Main Headlines
The idea is using the fact the bullying is often happening in the dark. The adults have problems noticing it, and believe that the children's world is fairytale-like. This campaign for Friends (the most well-known anti-bullying organization in Sweden) uncovers the myth and shows how the reality really is – a child being bullied. But we wanted to do this without being to obvious and let the viewers discover the situation for themselves. We also used a very idyllic illustration manner to highlight the fact that the grown-ups too often think life for children is like a fairy.
