Yves Geleyn continues the award winning Share Aware campaign for NSPCC and Leo Burnett UK. In this installment we follow Mia, voiced by comedic genius Catherine Tate, as she confidently navigates the outside world but then needs a bit more guidance in the murkier world of the internet. The  campaign has been extremely successful in educating both children and their parents on how to confront the dangers of the web, as well as garnering praise throughout the advertising and educational industry for its effectiveness.

Hornet Director Yves Geleyn loves mixing various creative styles, but claims that technique only functions to serve the story. Luckily for Hornet, Yves has a giant toolbox of techniques.

Yves Geleyn was brought into the world via the love of a German lady and a Frenchman in Reading, England (of all forgotten places), but he always ached for the adventures of a big city. It wasn’t long before Yves packed his bags and left for Paris, where he officially got his start studying graphic design, motion graphics and character development.

Since then, Yves has gone on to direct numerous short films, commercial campaigns and short form content, earning him multiple industry awards and major international recognition. In 2014 he curated multi national art exhibition Motion Factory, les ficelles du monde animé, a showcase of tactile animation technology and traditional craft method for the famed digital arts and modern music center La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris. His work Monster in the Closet — a PSA he directed for States United To Prevent Gun Violence with Grey NYC — sent a good message about safe gun storage with a powerful story. And Yves’ holiday spot for UK retailer John Lewis, The Bear and The Hare, took the festival circuit by storm when it debuted during Christmas 2014, and is still receiving applause from all sides of the industry to this day.

With a repertoire that runs the gamut, Yves makes evocative pieces that focus on the art of storytelling.
