INTERNATIONAL NEWS DW
An ongoing video series created for the international news station DW in based in Berlin, Germany.
The designs and animations have been developed based on the TV Station's branding guidelines and published between 2017 and 2018 on social media. Here are some samples!
The topics are timely, but have a longer shelf-life than regular news. Each video explains a fact with 2-3 big data points, illustrate a new phenomenon or reveals a common misconception.
2-4 minutes, narrated, 12 animated videos - unknown facts about powerful women
The goal is to shine light on women, that have not been given deserved attention for their contribution to society, science, community building or economy.
Often women have worked in the shadow of men and now is the time to uncover some of their hidden accomplishments.
Coming up with characters is fun for the creator and fun to watch. Here are short stories for LiveNation, the largest music/event organization in the USA.
These stories are promoting events:
National Tequila Day
National Rum Day
National IPA Day

The goal is to create inspirational messaging to educate/inspire boys and their primary mentors. We partner with influential companies/celebrities to help amplify the conversation.
"WHEN DISASTER STRIKES"
a series of 6 x 1 minute videos , mix of live action with interviews and animated graphics
A group of determined individuals heals a community after a natural catastrophe. The Montecito bucket brigade is made up of 2000 volunteers who helped clean up after a major earthslide in Montecito earlier this year. Devastating mudslides happened after heavy rainfalls in an area where a large scale wildfire burnt all plants and vegetation. 23 people were killed and over 100 houses destroyed.
The bucket brigade has since then successfully cleaned up homes, gardens, streets, etc and raised substantial funds for people who lost family members and hoems. Now they inspire other communities, who are in need of structure and guidance to work as a community.

The interviews could be conducted by one or more kids/ high-schoolers as part of their media education in our video creation workshop. Colorful pop graphics animate over video.
Example: Lady Leslie Ridley-Tree

"...SAVED MY LIFE"
" Dance Saved my life"
A Zumba fitness teacher/guru, who had an immobilizing disease, healed herself with dance.
Years ago, she could not even get dressed by herself or even brush her teeth without help and today she teaches daily classes with over 100 participants, - the biggest Zumba classe in the USA!
She healed her disease by dancing. This is such an empowering story...it changed my own perspective about pain and disease.
Each show is about a different individual telling and showing us what saved their life.
There are many examples of dance, music, animals and other “healing powers”.
