What happens when we listen?

For their partnership with StoryCorps - a non-profit who elicit, record, and archive stories of everyday America - YouTube filmed a series of creators talking to people close to them about subjects they’ve never spoken about before. We were asked to create a trailer, and look and feel, for the series, to be launched at the annual StoryCorps gala in New York.

We worked with Tjoff Koong Studios to create a series of bumpers and titles in a warm, hand-animated feel, responding to the qualities of the footage; and with Zelig Sound for a bespoke musical track that would convey the emotional depth of the content in a 60s trailer.
