No, it’s not a high-end vfx tour de force from a leading Hollywood post house; it’s a one-man job created by a guy (Kaza Razat) who believes in what he’s saying. He also happens to be saying something worth thinking about. That, in my book, deserves respect.
If you know of more examples of small-to-no budget vfx and/or motion graphics work created to raise public awareness about any issue, please let us know. We’re going to be hosting a related contest soon, and I’d like to stockpile some good examples to share with the community.
