Cannes Young Lion Competition released its campaign brief last Friday night, which led aspiring filmmakers the world over to rush to make a spot for Save The Children in just 48 hours.

The other videos featured here are from Peru’s Rodolfo Torres and Shachar Aylon, a freelancer in Israel, respectively.
