Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders worked with AUGUST to raise awareness for the devastating effect of malaria in Africa (it kills 88 African children every hour). World Malaria Day is on 25th April 2011 and to highlight this we produced two videos based around their new tagline, “Kiss Malaria Goodbye.”

The first video shows comedian Paul Snodgrass running around as mosquito, saying a tearful goodbye to people. AUGUST worked with Black Ginger in post production on the second video to create the ‘kiss effect’ using footage we took of people blowing kisses at the camera.

Big thanks to all involved on this who worked at very reduced rates to help this non-profit company and a good cause.
