Marshman Foundation

2D Animation, Illustration

Marshman Foundation, the research and development arm of Youth Opportunites, is an organisation who works with young people with the goal of empowering them with the tools and skills they need to overcome challenges now and in the future. This animated short film was developed to introduce young people to the Stars and Blackholes narrative. This concept looks at the effects of positive and negative energy and how it affects interactions and attitudes between people.

Monkeystack developed the animation in graphic novel art style, bringing the narrative to life over seven and a half minutes with subtle animation and dynamic compositions with a young adult audience in mind.

Stars and Black Holes is a project that we’re proud to have produced and fits perfectly with our development lens of entertainment, leading to engagement and education and in contributing positively to the social consciousness.
