TalkAboutIt.org was devised by Greg Grunberg (star of Love Bites, The Client List, Heroes, ALIAS, Felicity), in collaboration with the Epilepsy Foundation. TalkAboutIt.org unites celebrities and Hollywood stars to ask questions and to provide answers on epilepsy awareness, and invite change in the public’s false understanding and perceptions about epilepsy.
Day For Night designed and co-developed the Talk About It brand campaign through planning and strategy for a viral content, preceding the launch of the website which is designed around original video PSAs.
Web development and strategy, art direction, design, video editing and compositing, site programming and consultation.
TalkAboutIt.org was devised by Greg Grunberg (star of NBC’s HEROES), and designed in collaboration with the Epilepsy Foundation and Brian Peterson of Roam Creative. Talk About It! unites celebrities and Hollywood stars to ask questions and to provide answers on epilepsy awareness, and invite change in the public’s false understanding and perceptions about epilepsy.
We met the challenge of creating an imaginary world of underground train journeys and “tube” subway station platforms. These were wedded to the actor performances (who were filmed on blue-screen), in order to create a virtual journey from “ignorance to awareness” for the website, which is structured around original video PSAs.
