Pay It Forward

Paying it Forward. Animation for a Cause.

It’s the season for giving, and what better way to do it than by paying it forward by donating your skills to a worthy cause. This is exactly what Mexico City-based designer/animator Yaniv Fridman has done Animation for a Cause. Animation for a Cause is a non profit group that creates short animated films for social causes that need a voice. The work is all done for free, and it is outstanding. The videos below show Fridman’s skills as a designer and animator, and the first explains what Animation for a Cause is and does.

Currently there are two completed projects on the site, but Animation for a cause is ready for your organization to apply. The link above takes you to their home page where you can find out more about the service, and submit a project or perhaps volunteer to help.




Harry Frank Needs a Little Help.

HarryFor years now, one of the people that I have followed in the motion graphics, VFX, design world has been Harry Frank. The man is a genius at what he does, and he has always been the kind of person that shares his wealth of knowledge with the community. Over the course of almost 10 years Harry has provided hundreds of tutorials, presets, inspiration, and guidance to people world wide working in this field. I read today that Harry Frank has an issue he needs help with. If you know Harry and have ever used any of what he has provided to the community, here is your chance to pay him back by helping him out. The previous link takes you to his request for assistance, the following link takes you to his medical expense fundraiser page.
