    • 2011 43 minutes

      Life on streets of East London, The Wire style

      Illegal Activity is the brainchild of director, Sebastian Thiel and an attempt to encourage young people to educate themselves and read. The purpose of this viral campaign is to highlight the importance of gaining knowledge and expanding the mind in a clever and entertaining way. Knowledge is, after all, Power. The campaign will feature an array of cameo appearances from the most influential and well- known current talent in London who we believe can inspire the younger generation.

      Who Is Upshot?
      Young entrepreneur Sebastian Thiel founded Its
      Upshot in 2007 after he became increasingly
      concerned about the deteriorating state of youth
      culture in the UK. The 17- year-old Thiel used the
      popular channels of fashion and entertainment to
      reach out and communicate with his young peers
      and in turn has created a powerhouse brand that
      has gone from strength to strength. Its Upshot is
      about aiming high and standing tall despite
      hurdles and obstacles placed in front of you. The
      target symbol within the logo is illustrative of this
      notion; aiming for a positive outcome. With some
      of their work now reaching over 250,000 hits
      within days, Upshot have attracted an
      international audience, featuring on sites including
      World Star Hip Hop, a massive platform for their
      wider target audience. Upshot has proven to be
      one of the most impressive Internet channels for
      youth culture and entertainment today. -Upshot
      has got the attention of the youth.
