SBS – Immigration Nation

OnAir Documentary Program Promotion


The assignment was to promote the new SBS documentary series which explores the devastating consequences of "The White Australia Policy" in the countries society.

SBS wanted to address this topic and win the audience for this prime-time pilot.


A 30 second promotion that teases the topic in a brief summary. 

The fast passed animation style gives flow and rhythm to the promo, and draws attention to a polarising issue.

It ends with a provocative statement to win the audience.
