84000 “Words of the Buddha”

Giant Ant creates “Words of the Buddha,” an elegant 2D promo for non-profit 84,000.

The non-profit, 84000, has an enormous task ahead of them: tackling the 95% of Buddhist texts that have never been translated into modern languages. We helped them create a video that would spread their message and gain support, voiced by the ever-exuberant Russell Brand.
