Project Overview

Our all-volunteer nonprofit Youth Empowerment Group of mental health and education professionals needs animation help for our new video-based social-emotional learning (SEL) curriculum for fourth through eighth grade boys and girls called PowerUp. To be completed this fall (2021), each lesson includes a topical teaching video that includes a learning activity with 1-3 minute animated instructions. Completed animations thus far use our own puppets in Adobe Character Animator, and one animation was composited in After Effects. We would greatly appreciate a volunteer skilled in Character Animator (and possibly After Effects also) to create one or more of our activity animations using our puppets in Character Animator.
Children today face tremendous challenges to mental health, safety, equality, and success that have worsened during the pandemic. If you are passionate about supporting mental health, socio-economic, gender, and racial equality, safety, healthy relationships, and academic success in youth, you can contribute to this mission substantially with your animation skills. You can help kids around the country learn and empower them to use the life-skills that the PowerUp curriculum provides.
We will provide Character Animator puppet files, background images, script, voiceover, and story boards for one activity animation. The deliverable will be the completed animation video file timed to match the voiceover. We will then incorporate it into our lesson created using Final Cut Pro X.
