Animation Muse

I was honoured to be asked to contribute a film to the 'Imaginary Friend Society' initiative by the 'Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation'. Through a series of 20 animated short films, imaginary friends explain a wide range of complicated cancer topics in a way that kids can understand. Because the more they understand about their treatment, the less scary it will be.

I worked with the lovely people at Strange Beast to create an animation that explains what it could be like when a kid goes back to school after having their treatment.

The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is the world's largest nonprofit dedicated to families facing a child’s brain tumor diagnosis. You can donate to them here:

All the films are collected on this dedicated website:

Production Company - Strange Beast
Design and Direction - Andy Martin
Producer - Zoe Muslim
Executive Producers - Kitty Turley and Belle Palmer
