No Pressure on Climate Change – Video


10:10 No Pressure Movie

No Pressure is a controversial 2010 short film produced by the global warming mitigation campaign 10:10, written by Richard Curtis and Franny Armstrong, and directed by Dougal Wilson. Intended for cinema and television advertisements,[1] No Pressure is composed of scenes in which a variety of people in every-day situations are graphically blown to pieces for failing to be sufficiently enthusiastic about the 10:10 campaign to reduce CO2 emissions. The film’s makers said that they viewed No Pressure as “a funny and satirical tongue-in-cheek little film in the over-the-top style of Monty Python or South Park”.[2] Before its release, The Guardian described it as “attention-grabbing” and “pretty edgy.”[1]

The film was withdrawn from public circulation by 10:10, on the same day it was released, due to negative publicity.[3] Charities that had backed the film stated they were “absolutely appalled” upon seeing it, and several of 10:10’s corporate and strategic partners withdrew from partnership.[2] Fox News called the film “a blood-splattering display that has drawn anger from critics and sheepish embarrassment from its supporters.”[4]
