A series Ad for a Public Service Announcement campaign.
This campaign is to increase awareness about the current global situation in which minors are enlisted into armed groups and included in military activities. It aims to address the ever present need to protect these children from danger, and to provide them with an education and a better future.

The Red Riding Hood character was used as a symbol which stems from children's stories to represent the innocence and vunerability of a child. However, here the representation of the character is slightly warped, as an illustration of the flawed and one-sided perspective that these children are exposed to.

[+] UPDATE
Did a color grading as previous copy
was an export from direct raw.
Color grading and text layout was also
improved for Crowbar submission.

This is really nice. Typographically I like the middle one the best, but I really think that the one on the left is a more striking image and kind of explains the concept better. The only thing that strikes me as a little off concept is that the person in the hood may be a little to old to play the role of a child. Instead of depicting the serious issue of children becoming killers, the pretty woman in a red cloak with a big gun kinda screams fashion or something with utilizing sex appeal and that may not be what your going for.

It's a fantastic concept with fantastic pictures. The only criticism that I have is that I wish we could see her face in the third photo.

Hey.... these look realy good... wd...

but there is one thing i would like to say.
out of the three the middle one is the best, why do i say that? Well... because the ones on the side look as if she is torturing them and i dont think that fully sends the message that children are being recruited... What im trying to say is that the torturing makes it look more "mature" if you know what i am trying to say...

Other than that i think its realy well dont...
