IFAW: Cats, Dogs and Us, 2013
Every two years the International Fund for Animal Welfare produces animal education videos for young school children. The videos are produced in over six languages and shown in schools around the world.
In 2013 the short documentary focused on humans relationships with cats and dogs. We teamed up with IFAW to create animated scenes and titles to augment the video footage. We aimed for the style, color, movement and humor to increase engagement with the young audience.

CLARO, The Feerick Center & LawHelp.org: Legal Assistance Videos, 2014
In 2013 almost 100,000 consumer debt lawsuits cases were filed in NYC. The majority of the consumers who are sued are minorities or senior citizens. Most are poor and cannot afford to hire a lawyer. This means that they almost invariably enter the legal system woefully uninformed.
In partnership with New Media Advocacy Project we created a series of modular animations as an educational tool. The user fills out a questionnaire after which a suite of videos is pulled together customized to their situation. They also have the option of watching all 11 videos, which takes them through the entire consumer debt lawsuit process, from receiving a summons to going to court.
