Billions of euros are laundered through Dutch banks each year. More young minds are needed to hunt down the criminals responsible. But how do you recruit sceptical millennials to work for ABN AMRO? Not with a traditional campaign. So we launched a short thriller that tests if viewers are sharp enough to detect the signs of money laundering. The ones that did got offered a job as a financial crime analyst.
The movie was released online and in over 100 cinemas nationwide.
Sit back, relax and watch the full film below. Keep those eagle eyes open for anything out of the ordinary.
An online campaign promoted the movie and challenged people to find all suspicious details.
As a copywriter i'm still quite fond of the campaign line fout geld spaart niemand (translation: dirty money stains everyone).
The Dark Side of Money won +20 awards at both local and global shows. Including a Eurobest Grand Prix. Which made N=5 independent and national agency of the year in 2020.
