Moving image and mobility 

Film is also called moving image. The image film for the world's leading "prosthesis manufacturer" Ottobock moves on several levels. Emotionally it moves, formally it shows people in motion. However, it shows people with prostheses that enable them to move. The term prosthesis is an antiquated terminology that Ottobock replaced with "mobility for people" and this is exactly what became the leitmotif for the film.

It is about mobility concepts! 

The challenge was to find an emotional translation for the claim 'Quality for life'. A moving film with the core theme of 'mobility concept' was to positively encode the negatively connotated word prosthesis and to make it more tangible with the optimistic term mobility. 


Prosthesis versus mobility

The Ottobock company was to be conveyed simultaneously to potential top level managers, specialists and junior staff through the films in an emotional, authentic and exciting way. map, together with Ottobock, led several employer branding workshops that highlighted the value system of the Ottobock company as an employer and further sharpened the positioning of the employer brand.

Sensitive messages with high impact

The image film was so successful that four elaborate corporate films were produced afterwards, which successfully communicated the narratives inside and outside the company. The films were subsequently released in several installments. One of them represented the Ottobock company at the "Hidden Champions" awards in an empathetic and at the same time informative manner.
