With an eye for the modern and a flair for the dramatic, Sinha’s work with girlswhocode is a perfect mix of her editorial background and expressive talent.
What was the brief like? So much of the spot seems like it would be difficult to translate.
The brief was to allow the viewers to imagine a world without women. The work of female coders is essential and irreplaceable and without their work the internet would literally breakdown. Mojo Supermarket had done a lot of research and pulled a lot of references for us. And Girls Who Code were really vocal and clear about what they wanted.
It was a great jumping off point but the challenge was to wrangle it all into a narrative with emotional beats and creating a character at the center of it. We also wanted to make sure that tonally it felt cohesive with the voice and the brand of girlswhocode. Aesthetically, we wanted the piece to stand out and be a bit unexpected and surprising so we discussed taking a whimsical approach to balance the seriousness of what we were seeing on screen.
I have always believed that our inspirations find a way to work themselves into the work, whether subconsciously or subtly.
At the end of the day, we wanted to create a story that felt immersive and emotional but completely fresh. Working with Mojo and shy kids was a step by step process to build towards that.
