TBI-Incubated Company Launches One-Minute Videos on Social Causes

A T-TBI incubated company, TBF Technology, has launched a ‘one-minute movie’ project that makes and promotes one-minute-long movies on social issues such as water conservation, drugs, and alcohol. These movies are promoted by the company’s website, besides other social media platforms like Facebook and Whatsapp.

Shaji A. John, CEO, TBF Technology, said that the aim of the company was to get the message to the viewer easy and crisp. He said: “These days, it is Whatsapp and Facebook that helps disseminate information. We wanted our movies to be viral and for that, it had to short and crisp. Nobody has the time to spend anything more than one or two minutes for this. The one-minute limit ensures that it is shared and goes viral more easily through all forms of online and mobile platforms.”

The company has brought out three movies so far.  The first movie was titled ‘Precious’ and it highlighted the water woes faced today. The movie was launched by noted director Kamal. The second was ‘Foodball’ that focused on the issue of food. The latest—‘Careful’—was launched by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and Excise Minister K. Babu and addressed the problems of alcoholism.

The company will soon be launching similar movies against drug abuse and cigarette use.
