A while back, we posted a spot for non-profit helpline Samaritans entitled “Doodle” that featured the animation work of Christian Bevilacqua (among others). Christian is back for Samaritans, this time directing “Vectorscope,” produced by Therapy Films.
“Vectorscope” employs a few tried and true mograph devices (namely the ubiquitous ribbon), but it has some poignantly innovative new tricks up its sleeve as well. The transition from bird to barbed wire is especially nice.
Samaritans should be heartily applauded for funding such lyrical work and eschewing the standard approach to this sort of messaging.
