In 2021, Tom Munday and I created illustrated animations for a follow up of a BBC Panorama documentary we first worked on in 2017 on the sensitive subject of ‘peer-on-peer’ child abuse.
To help anonymise the victims but still tell their stories in a powerful manner, over six minutes of hand-drawn animated content was created to accompany four different children’s accounts for each documentary.
We produced 4 different treatments to make each case identifiably unique. It was an extremely challenging project in many ways; partly in terms of the amount of content we needed to create but mostly the emotional impact of working on these stories and the difficulty of dealing with the subject in an accurate yet sensitive manner.
