Creative Services


CATIE is developing a series of video assets to disseminate some key messages about hepatitis C to immigrants and newcomers living in Ontario. These messages include 1) immigrants coming from high prevalence countries may be at risk and should be tested 2) that newer hepatitis C treatments are highly effective, short in duration and are now available through public and private drug plans. The primary asset will be a four- to five-minute video in English featuring intergenerational pairs of family members from each of the four target immigrant communities of the campaign. Each pair will predominantly speak in English, with some limited discussion in their family’s first language (Mandarin, Punjabi, Urdu or Filipino). The format will follow the same unscripted interview video style popularized by Buzzfeed and present in our previous “Can’t Pass It On” campaign. Cut-down videos would be prepared for each language, of 20 to 30 seconds each, to be shared online and potentially broadcast through television spots. The creative services consultant will coordinate all aspects of creative production, including casting, interviews with participants in English, Mandarin, Punjabi, Urdu and Filipino, set design and props, editing and finishing.


CATIE strengthens Canada’s response to HIV and hepatitis C by bridging research and practice. We connect healthcare and community-based service providers with the latest science, and promote good practices for prevention and treatment programs. As Canada’s official knowledge broker for HIV and hepatitis C, you can count on us for up-to-date, accurate and unbiased information.
