Short Film Dives Deep into Local ATL Business Owners' Stories to Turn Georgia Blue

Creative 292 Add to collection

Uppercut and 22Squared team up to elevate the voices of real Georgians in film edited by Nick Ljubicich for the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP

Short Film Dives Deep into Local ATL Business Owners' Stories to Turn Georgia Blue

This November, we saw Georgians do what critics said was impossible by turning the red state blue for the first time since 1992. Trump may be on his way out, but the work isn’t over. In partnership with the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP, a collective of politically-minded individuals from 22Squared and Uppercut have produced a film to carry the momentum from the presidential win into the Georgia runoffs on January 5th. 

This film will turn out the vote for the upcoming election and emphasise the impact that Jon Ossoff, Reverend Warnock and Daniel Blackman will have not only in the community, but on the future of our country. Featured interviewees will include Richard Rose (Atlanta NAACP President), Shirley Franklin (former mayor of Atlanta), Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley, local business owners, and other members of the community. The Senate and the future of the movement depends on who wins in January. 

This short film elevates the voices of real Georgians, and nods to the late Rep. John Lewis, inspiring our audience to carry on his legacy by voting in January. With a team of passionate creatives, editors, DPs, still photographers, and producers, Uppercut and 22Squared are creating this campaign in conjunction with the NAACP and are discussing ways to broaden its reach with The New Georgia Project, The Women's March, and the candidate’s campaigns.
