Student Work: Foster Hope TV Campaign
Animation College Students with support from B.O.A Lecturer Dane Jacobs have created animation for Foster Hope's latest television campaign.
Foster Hope help provide basics for children entering foster care with kits containing a bag, carry all bag, personal hygiene items & comfort items.
Working together with Mediaworks Foundation, AC students were given a brief to interpret various voiceovers as they reflected on the moment they first left home.
The campaign will be running in 15 and 30 second segments on TV3 for the rest of the year, as Foster Hope seek donations to help fund the charity.
AC regularly contributes to animation for social change, with this project being the third that the college has taken part in, in the last three years.
Animation has an appeal which is unparalleled. Our students are discovering that perceptions of what animation is, and the impact it can have, are transformable depending on the subject matter.
Students really enjoyed the opportunity to work on the project and also get to use the finished animation in their showreels.
What was it like when you left home? For over 5000 kids in foster care leaving home was a traumatic experience. Help us help them. Please donate at fosterhope.org.nz or TXT 306 to donate $3.
