What better day to celebrate this series of issue-based animations than election day?

This election day, I can think of no better way to celebrate than by performing your civic duty and enjoying some amazing issue-based animation made by none other than Buck.

“Infographica” was made in collaboration with MTV and the “Elect This” campaign. By doing what they do best, Buck created a smattering of issue-based animations in a modular format that MTV could use to create videos their viewers actually care about.

 

 

Ranging from topics like gay marriage and social justice to issues such as climate change, immigration, and healthcare, “Infographica” takes the viewer through a mixed-media extravaganza using Buck’s effective all-hands-on-deck strategy.

As with much of Buck’s work, they aren’t afraid to explore, get their hands dirty and let’s face it, get a little weird. Whether your interests lie in 3D, typography, 2D animation or stop motion, there is something for everyone in this series which is structured around many of the day’s most pressing issues.

Be sure to check out the full series below as well as the credits.
