AboutKidsHealth Mental Health 
Explainer Animations

I created two animations on emotional suppression and cognitive defusion featured on the AboutKidsHealth website and YouTube channel. Both animations strive to educate and empower chronically hospitalized youth and their families on how to deal with unwanted thoughts and emotions.


Provided with script drafts, character designs and stock imagery from the client, I edited the script, storyboarded, created animatics, animated and composited the final animations.
