'Half Stories – Full Impact!'

Digital L&K Saatchi & Saatchi wins Gold Award of Excellence for Tata Capital’s ‘Half Stories – The Journey Of Doing Right’.

India - ‘Half Stories’ is a campaign that got people to connect with and participate in Tata Capital’s brand promise of ‘We only do what’s right for you’. A result of Digital L&K Saatchi & Saatchi and Tata Capital’s collaborative efforts, ‘Half Stories’ is a unique initiative of half finished video stories that (1) drew people in due to its incomplete nature and (2) gave them an opportunity to complete the stories through online monetary contributions or through social sharing.

Through this 24x7 live, online campaign, our ‘Do Righter’ Pankaj Trivedi undertook a 2000km bike ride across India to find and film everyday stories of everyday people living in the remotest parts of the country. These films with suggested solutions were made into webisodes that were uploaded on a dedicated website and promoted using social media, blogs and PR. The site also has a payment gateway for online donations.

“This Campaign has been an amazing experience. It actually leverages social media for social change and proves that business can work for social good too. It was a mammoth journey across Northern India with the campaign serendipitously unfolding every day. It was actually 'Live Creativity’ at work,” said Anil K. Nair, CEO (Digital) & Managing Partner, Digital L&K Saatchi & Saatchi.

“The ‘Do Right’ initiative is a key initiative for Tata Capital and our aim through the initiative is to help propagate the philosophy of ‘doing right’ by inspiring people to do right, provide platforms to doing right and doing right ourselves,” said Veetika Deoras, Head Brand Marketing, Corporate Communication and Digital Vertical, Tata Capital. “’Half Stories’ is a platform that allows us as ordinary people, to get connected with simple stories of simple needs of other people and together script a happier end. It is about two halves, which ordinarily would have never met, meeting. We are deeply encouraged by this recognition and want to thank the Communicator Awards panel for their vote of confidence in the campaign and supporting us.”
