Animation: Are Children Being Ignored? DATE CREATED: June 2016 WEB ADDRESS: ABOUT THE PROJECT: I created this short animation for Barnardos as a digital engagement piece, to encourage supporters to take action and call on our Government to make sure Budget 2017 prioritises children. It was my first time trying out this whiteboard animation style and it was really enjoyable to put together. It was created using Adobe Illustrator, the video app Videoscribe and Adobe After Effects. From an engagement point of view it's worked really well - in just a couple of weeks it's been watched over 8,000 times on Facebook and shared over 270 times.

Videos for the 2015 Yes Equality Campaign

Guide to Canvassing - for Yes Equality Guide to First Time Voters - for BeLonG To Youth Services Date created: Mar - May 2015 About the Project: I volunteered to create some informational videos for the Yes Equality coalition in the 2015 Marriage Referendum.  The brief was to create some straightforward informational videos that could be sent to potential canvassers to help build their knowledge, and to inform first time voters on how to cast their vote properly. I used the iPad app Adobe Spark Video (formerly Adobe Voice) to create these videos, and used text slides as they are really effective on social media.  Adobe Spark is now also available as a desktop tool and I really recommend trying it out - it's free and incredibly easy to use. The videos were widely used and shared, and got a great response on Facebook particularly.   By the way, I also helped out a little bit with the video below, which was created to encourage people to get out and canvass for Yes  Equality. The video was conceived by Peter McGuire and directed by Rory Bresnihan; the part I played was small (some advice on optimising the video for social sharing) but I wanted to include it here cause it's just so lovely <3
