Partnership for a Drug-Free America

Myself and the Nice Shoes team filmed and animated this piece for the Partnership for a Drug-Free America to convey their message of athletic mentorship and positivity.   Through interviews with kids, teenagers, adults and professional coaches, experiences were given an illustrative life, visually unfolding each story as it was told.

…and yes, Take on Me was definitely a big reference. My obsession with that music video goes back as far as a lip-synced performance at my 5th grade talent show.
