In Praise of Prevention is the second in a series of animated video shorts by Chocolate Moose Media focusing on Ebola in West Africa. It is designed to prevent the next outbreak of Ebola from ever happening.
The first video in the series, A Poem For The Living, focused on containing the disease during the outbreak in 2014/2015, and the third video, Beyond Survival, focused on countering the stigma felt by those that survived Ebola.
The soundtrack sung by Grammy Award-winning singer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Angelique Kidjo was composed by Ottawa, Canada’s Andrew Huggett. The video once again brings together longtime international collaborators co-writers Canadian Firdaus Kharas and South African Brent Quinn in South Africa and animators at Artha Animation in India. The video was funded by UNICEF Togo and United Methodist Communications.
