Our team was enlisted to help tell the story, using animation and live-action, of an eight-year-old boy who had been abandoned by his parents and with the help of a CASA volunteer, adopted into a loving family. The spot makes use of an imaginary world of paper cut-outs which place the boy and the volunteer firmly in the center of a whirlwind of court proceedings, lawyers and multiple foster homes. 

Mode Project was presented with this opportunity via design studio Thirst/Chicago on behalf of EPIC (Engaging Philanthropy Inspiring Creatives), an organization which helps top-tier creative talent join forces with nonprofit clients.

Mode Project totally made the script come to life in this incredible video hybrid that is obviously digital but remarkably analog in spirit.
