Rotavirus Documentary

GSK wanted to highlight the impact of a nasty virus which affects children in particular.

We suggested the story of a family whose young child contracts the virus. We show how things may have been different with a vaccine, and how the child gets better through hospital treatment, giving the obligatory happy ending!

We developed a simple illustration style in Flash, before being exporting in parts to AfterEffects for compositing, effects, grading and sound.
