In 2011, the Minor Foundation for Major Challenges set a climate change communications challenge to the global creative community.  Wildwon’s script was judged as one of the top 3 in the world and we received a grant and set about making our first ever animation.

Since then the film has screened in Melbourne’s Federation Square for the Sustainable Living Festival, the Eco Footprints Film Festival and ‘Pop Sydney’ in Sussex Lane.

Studies have shown that not enough people truly understand and/or accept the statement: "Emissions from human use of fossil energy cause climate change”. Our piece surprises, awakens and educates people about the issue.

This is George is a short animation which tells the story of humans and climate change using beautiful illustration, typography and infographics to communicate a message effectively and alert audiences to the great challenge of our generation. Watch the 3 minute animation below.

Spot on.. beautiful stuff
