A cheerful animation about bad things

We analyzed different forms of propaganda and were given the topic ‘see no evil’ for our class project.
Our task was to distill the notions of our research into a short, poignant clip. My intention was to present bad things happening in our world in a cheerful fashion. The various catastrophic events are never fully shown to completion – they are only alluded to but, as our world spins so quickly, they disappear beyond the horizon before they can fully unfold.

Below: some initial but unused styleframes.
