Centerstone was looking for a series of animated videos to teach teenagers about how to stay safe in their sexual health. This included tips for how to talk to their parents, red flags in relationships, and even a demonstration on how to use protection.
The first thing we did was create a character design we’d use for all six videos. Then, we worked with the client on finalizing a script for each video. From there, we put a storyboard together and began working on each video simultaneously.
