Unseen Gaza (Trailer)
Trailer for Channel 4 Dispatches special with the acclaimed UK news presenter Jon Snow featuring footage from the Middle East that had not aired on mainstream TV. It examined the consequences of Israel’s decision to ban journalists from entering Gaza during the recent conflict. With news restrictions and foreign journalists thrown out of Gaza, Dispatches wanted to tell the world that the concern should not be with the footage they can see but the footage they can’t. A strong, simple typographical route was devised where the animated words spoken by Jon Snow were ‘censored’ before they were revealed. This was set within a white rectangle that obscured the majority of the footage of the Gaza conflict that ran in the background of the trailer.
