Animating a TED Ed lesson

Recently I finished directing a commissioned short film (4:20 mins) for TED Ed . The lesson was "What Are Human Rights?" written by the amazing educator, Bennedetta Berti. I had received the VO and had to work according to it. We only had 2 months for the whole project which is really short so I tried to keep things very simple.

Amin Haghshenas did the animating in anime studio and he did a really neat job I think :)
the experience on the whole was really nice, I guess the topic had also a role in making it such a pleasure to work on it too.

After finishing the project, as I was in the US for a festival, I used the opportunity to go and visit the team and my producer Gerta Xhelo at TED Ed, in New York, it was fantastic! here are two links to the video, check it out and let me know what you think :)
