The Blind Men and the Elephant
Newton Investment Management
Each year Speakeasy produces a conference for Newton, which is part of the Bank of New York Mellon. The opening video is always a key way of introducing the event’s theme and getting the audience ‘in the mood’.
One of the event themes was the traditional Indian legend of the six blind men and the elephant. We used animation to tell the story for the delegates in advance of Newton’s chief executive explaining its relevance to understanding the current global economic climate.
Delegate feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with delegates reporting that the film was ‘original’, ‘fresh’, ‘fun’ and ‘exhilarating’. It engendered an understanding of the original story and reinforced the event’s central message in a way that was absolutely in keeping with the Indian theme.
