I was tasked by the CEO of Kidlinks to work with Brazen Animation and develop a branding video that could be used for donors at their annual gala.  Griffin’s Song is the result, and focuses on Griffin, a strong young kid who suffers from a form of autism.  I helped to document a day in Griffin’s life and how he uses music therapy to get better.

For decades, KidLinks has provided healing experiences for the special needs of children through performing arts and media, funded therapeutic music initiatives, university-level Music Therapy training and free/low cost treatment programs for children in need. Today, through Hugworks Children’s Network (HCN), KidLinks is changing the face of therapeutic music entertainment for patients and families in hospitals across North Texas and beyond. Funds raised go directly to the creation of content that can improve the daily experiences of hospitalized and special needs children when they need it most as well as provide educational resources for the adults who care for them.

Industry veterans came together in 2013 to form Brazen Animation.  In a world saturated with “throw away entertainment,” they have one goal: to tell inspirational stories with meaning and purpose, utilizing cutting edge technology and bold visuals.  Put simply, they want everyone to be Brazen.
