Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition

written & directed BY KAIA ROSE, animated by dani tinez

The Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC) at the World Bank had an archive of interviews with leaders from around the world talking about carbon pricing and they needed to pull these together in a creative way for a new video series.  I created a script from this collection of interviews and collaborated with animator Dani Tinez on the visual style and animatic/storyboard, working with him all the way through the animation process.

Connect4Climate - 2017 Recap video


I officially joined the Connect4Climate team in the spring of 2017 and it turned into a year of highs and lows, with the passing of the founding manager of the program, Lucia Grenna.  When it came time to look back and reflect on the year, I gathered together footage from we were involved in around the world and edited together a recap video that covered the depth and breadth of Connect4Climate's work.

Connect4Climate - #Uniting4Climate


In the lead up and during COP 23, partners will share messages, host events and showcase climate solutions under the #Uniting4Climate hashtag.  The campaign is a partnership between the World Bank and the governments of Fiji and Germany and is meant to highlight unity in support of climate solutions.  Using the expansive Connect4Climate archive, including much of my own footage, I put together a trailer to help promote the campaign globally.  Then after shooting for a week at the United Nations during their 72nd General Assembly, I created a Call to Action teaser using clips of climate champions declaring that they are uniting for climate.

A feature film shot in the UK, The Fold is about Anglican priest Rebecca Ashton who, struggling with her grief,  tries to replace her deceased daughter with another girl.   I accompanied the production on location in Cornwall and Bristol as a one-woman band, conducting and filming all interviews myself and then creating two Behind-the-Scenes films for the London-based production house, Electric Shadow Company.


ArthurCox - Making of 8 minutes idle

Based upon Matt Thorne's award-winning novel about life in a call centre, 8 minutes idle is a warped urban comedy about what it really means to put your life 'on hold'.  This low budget feature was produced by Sarah Cox and directed by Mark Simon Hewis, funded as part of Creative England's iFeatures scheme.  The film was shot entirely on location in Bristol and I joined them on set to create the official Behind-the-Scenes film.

Bristol Film Office - Filming in Bristol

directed, edited & filmed by kaia rose

Bristol is one of the best shooting locations in the UK but it was somewhat of a well-kept secret before the Bristol Film Office began promoting their work in the region.  As someone who lived in Bristol for seven years, I was proud to show off what this great British city can offer to filmmakers.

directed and edited by kaia rose

A Time Traveller's Guide to Bristol is a digital archive project produced by ArthurCox that focuses on seven locations in the city of Bristol, looking at how they've evolved over the last 100 years.  Drawing upon footage found in the BBC archives, the Bristol City Council Archives and donated by the citizens of Bristol, this was a unique and extensive project that deserved a comprehensive Behind-the-Scenes film.
