Moth Collective: HIAS

This is yet another example from the Moths of animation for a good cause and the fact that great work isn’t exclusive to large studios!

Awesome work, beautiful compositions. It’s nice to see “explainer” Videos that feel a bit more like actual visual stories.


lovely work


Nice! Love how minimal the movements are and give so much of the story.


“HIAS – for the refugee” (edit: except of course if you’re a Palestinian refugee seeking safety after being displaced by an illegal settlement supported and funded by HIAS, then you should probably suck it up)

Aside from the hypocrisy of the script this is a beautiful job by Moth Collective *hats off*


Agreed. Beautiful work is much less beautiful if it supports an ignoble cause.
I know we are supposed to be focussed on the work, but this is difficult to ignore.


Croatia shouldn’t be on that list! Do your research.


Soo-ooo beautiful!! So well designed!! Great message!!! Love it!! Go make more!! :) :D


nice work
