No Knives, Better Lives

The OLSP Film Making Club have been working on this comedy short film for months. We decided to create a film to promote the ‘No Knives, Better Lives’ campaign. This parody of watching television was thought up when Laura O’D actually asked ‘Do ‘no knives’ make better lives? Do we not need knives?’. Of course this opened up a different method of filming and a different way of promoting the cause. I am sure that most short films created for the project feature some dark gritty images about someone stabbing someone else. The club thought that it would be interesting to turn it on it’s head. It looked at times when using knives were important for doing good and thought it important to promote that. The message, of course, is ‘we need knives, but we should be sensible with them’.

Let me know what you think of the film and if you found it funny and thought provoking or if you think the message is lost. Can awareness be introduced through humour? We thought so… We hope you do too.

  1. I thought all of the ideas were fantastic and very creative… But the ‘Mastercook’ section was particularly inspired and could have worked all by itself. It made me laugh a lot!
