YFS teamed up with Griffith Film School to produce a series of animations that challenge harmful behaviours in relationships.
Animation Program Director at GFS, Dr Peter Moyes took on the Producer role and brought in talented Honours student William Pietsch to work on the project.
“William came up with some fantastic concepts. Through discussions with YFS Ambassadors, we developed the project, with Will breathing life into the ideas with his incomparable stylings,”
Dr Peter Moyes also praised the collaborative nature of the project. “This was a fantastic opportunity for Griffith Film School to combine forces with a great community organisation, and to use our strengths in animation production to raise awareness and highlight important issues around community welfare.”
The series of short animations targets young people in an effort to promote healthy and respectful relationships. The animated clips were designed for sharing across social media, incorporating pithy messaging and accessible inclusive characters.
Industry executive and co-founder of Altvfx, Takeshi Takada also praised the piece, “I was amazed and excited to see the standard of the work produced for the Don’t Be a Bad Apple animated films. They ticked all the boxes in the brief and made a piece of entertaining content that appeals to a wide audience. In today’s digital and social age, this is the kind of thing that could be adapted across many different platforms, reaching a target audience the world over.”
