Making a difference with one.

Very cool animation work for Amnesty International. (Via ALR.)

whoa, that was really cool in a kinda trippy way. didn't even seem like 2.5 minutes.

I don't know whether it's the tedious music, somewhat cliche scenarios, or general lack of cute chicks, but I like the A-Ha video much better.

Yes, but A-Ha never freed anyone.


Cute chicks, okay, I can see the point though.

The animation here is pretty great. And, true, your signature, in the right hands, is more powerful than you think. But this vid also perpetuates the notion that awareness and doing something like signing a petition changes super harsh realities on the ground. Real geopolitical change is glacial for the most part, and when it does happen quickly with the stroke of a pen it's the signature of a statesman on a major treaty.

But why am I getting so worked up over really a very clever spot with one flaw? I guess I just don't know any other way to be.
