To show the impacts of oil palm plantations, campaign leader Rolf Schipper is visiting Indonesia in 2017. This resulted in a series of vlogs, several of which were edited and delivered immediately on location in the field. Besides the vlogs we also produced other types of short video’s for use on social media: so-called Mood Video’s and Call to Action Video’s.

All content used in the campaign Draw the Line of Friends of the Earth Netherlands.
