10 Thousand Windows is an organization that's doing some truly meaningful work and having a dramatic, lasting impact on people's lives. They exist to help survivors of violence and exploitation live safe, free and hopeful lives. I was honored and extremely excited to work with them. Check them out here: 10thousandwindows.org/
Working with the organization and the good folks over at SouthSouthWest (southsouthwest.com.au/) I took this project from script through storyboards to design and animation. It was fun and challenging and ultimately my favorite kind of work to do.

A glimpse of the original storyboard.
The main character was designed to garner a sense of empathy from the audience.
Windows symbolize hope throughout the video and throughout the organization.
The orb of light acts as both a container of memories and childhood innocence and also a beacon of hope for the future.
