A FAIRER WORLD
Animated Documentary Sequences
Animation by Vivien Mason
Documentary Director Letitia Lamb
A Fairer World is a non-profit organisation campaigning for social justice. Working with director Letitia Lamb they created a series of short documentary films to spread awareness of the harm of discrimination.
I was commissioned to create a series of animated memories as part of the project. I created animations to accompany the words of interviewees who had been discriminated against on the basis of race, mental health, disability and homosexuality. What a fantastic and interesting initiative!
