Facing History and Ourselves

The History Of
Facing History just wanted a few social posts to promote an annual essay contest. After we read their latest entries, we knew we needed to do something much bigger. The team and I pitched the education nonprofit on a concept for a series of videos that transforms essays into a timeline and folds students into the histories they study.

These videos saw higher engagement on social media than the industry average. They also won Best of Broadcast from Washington DC's Ad Federation.

I concepted, pitched, whittled down the annals of time to its bare essentials, wrote scripts, provided feedback to animators, and gave direction to students on their VOs.
