Wellington Management partnered with Woodwell Climate Research Center, who provide science to help address the climate crisis. Together, they developed a software application called the Climate Exposure Risk Application (CERA), which helps investors understand the climate impact on capital assets around the world.
This short film helps raise awareness of the partnership and the software. Filmed during the pandemic in 2020, the first challenge was one of distance as they were all based in the US. We worked closely with them to ensure that they were properly briefed, had access to the right equipment, and felt comfortable with remote filming. Based on screencasts and screenshots provided by their developers we developed motion graphics demonstrating the application, and then used stock footage to illustrate examples of the impact of climate change on water supplies in Chennai, India, and the increased risk of hurricanes in Corpus Christi, Texas.
