FILM & VIDEO
We create social-impact animation to:
- visually entertain when explaining our needed work to the marketplace, e.g., during our global crowdfunding campaigns,
- demonstrate to local indigenous partners with animated color, sound, and image how PSYDEH navigates with them our bottom-up fight against inequality, and
- use narratives to confirm truths that deepen our understandings of how much human beings share no matter our culture, class, and gender.
PSYDEH’s current animators are USA-based student Olivia Taylor and German-based entrepreneur Andre Stoffel.
