Following the events that happened in Nepal on April 25th, 2015, Unicef reached out to me and asked if I would make a film to spread awareness to the worsening conditions in this region.
With the help of Antfood for music and sound design, the result is this :90 advocacy film which I researched, wrote, directed, designed and animated.
Given the nature of creating an animation for an ongoing crisis, time was not on our side. From concept to completion, this film was created in two weeks to meet the one-month anniversary of the first earthquake in Nepal. Given the limitations I faced with production, I really wanted to embrace exposing the seams and focus on this being a tonal piece. I didn't just want to expose the seams, I wanted to live in them. This was an opportunity to explore new directions and bad decisions because, at the end of the day, the pixels don't need to be perfect. All that matters is the message and generating awareness. While creating this film I had three main goals: I wanted it to feel human, to inform people of the ongoing crisis and, most importantly, how they can help.
Please help by sharing this piece and generating awareness for those in need.
