Dave De Carlo edits moving short film for BBDO Toronto and Mercedes-Benz Canada

Dave De Carlo recently collaborated with Revolver Films’ talented young director Mark Bone on an incredibly moving short film for BBDO Toronto and Mercedes-Benz Canada. The agency commissioned Toronto-based queer artist Thomarya “Tee” Fergus to create a mural that was inspired by conversations with people from the LGBTQ2 community who have experienced hate speech, bullying and discrimination. Based on their stories, Fergus created a mural she hopes will encourage healing.

The film, which launched during Pride Week 2017, documents some of the people behind the recently-unveiled mural that sends a message of love and inclusivity to passers-by in Toronto, while the corresponding digital campaign takes a stand against abuse and hate speech on a national scale.
