Parker Foundation's Cancer + Immunotherapy Videos

3+ years ago I had the opportunity to contribute designs and animation on a big project for the Parker Foundation (two of our three films are below - more coming soon). Screened during a major fundraising event hosted by Tom Hanks, each video was created to tackle a different look at the war on cancer.

Big crew of artistic talent was involved on this including: Matt Smithson, Arthur Metcalf, Tom SmoMike HealeyAngela De VitoJake ArmstrongMarika CowanAlan Foreman, Will PittasStephanie Simpson and Danni Fisher-Shin. Directed by Matt Smithson/Arthur Metcalf. Narrated by Jason Sudeikis.

Happy to be able to finally share it! Stay tuned for Film 3...

Fuck cancer.
