Social Responsibility Impact and Highlights

Voice Above Water

Pixar’s Dana Frankoff and Baliprod Photo & Video Production Agency teamed up to raise awareness about the continuous plastic pollution problem in the world’s ocean.

Voice Above Water is the story of Wayan Nyo, a 90-year-old fisherman who can no longer fish because of the huge amount of plastic filling up the ocean. He decides to use his fishing boat and net to pull out the plastic and trash from the water – hoping to fish again.

This short film is a glimpse into how one human and use their resources to make a change, and a massive reminder that it takes all of us playing our own part, coming together to accomplish something much greater than ourselves.

Ikan Kecil Foundation

ikan kecil foundation

In 2017 Mount Agung had 5 eruptions, causing some 40,000 people to be evacuated from surrounding 22 villages. This had a devastating impact on local communities who already had little to nothing. Most families relied on tourism, which was also affected.

This foundation supplies and donations to evacuees from Mt. Agung and local community. We helped organise mass donations and provided transport during the devastating volcano eruption. Baliprod also used our own resources to create a film to raise awareness.
