Animation for the Nation!
You asked for it, so here it is! The Greek Crisis explained in 3 episodes. We didn’t want to have our hands tied when it came to Greek Financial Crisis. It was a joint decision to set them free, and this is what they came up with; the “Greek Crisis Explained” Trilogy. This project was basically assigned by us to ourselves and our brief was happily clear-cut: “Present our very own version of the Greek Crisis”. And the story goes like this; Greece, a young spoiled girl gets devoured by Dept, a humongous monster. EU cannot help Greece out on its own. And when all hope is lost, IMF is brought into play…
