SPB082: Life in My Shoes animation
Produce a series of 2 minute animated films, each one based on the audio recording of a person’s story who has struggled with being HIV+. Each person will be from a different part of the world (Delhi, Boston, Pretoria etc.) for the Life In My Shoes (LIMS) international project. The people in these stories can’t show their faces because of the devastating stigma that still surrounds HIV. We are looking for an animator to realise the story in a creative and innovative ways, either by creating a character than doesn’t look like the interviewee, or finding some other creative way to tell the story.
