We were honoured to help tell the story of of Elizabeth Garcia, a 9 year old leukaemia survivor (and serious hip hop fan) depicting her fight against leukaemia as a dance battle! The animation is part of an online fundraising campaign for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
We created the film in just a few short weeks, collaborating closely with McCann Health’s IGNITE team, which is designed to bring young and diverse creative talent into the industry.
The animation was brought to life with wonderful sound by James Locke-Hart, and a bespoke hip hop track created by The Salt House Studio.
