We were exited to team up with friend and director Mariana Blanco to create this spot for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Malaria Forum in 2011. Using hand drawn animation, we depicted the Greek myth of Sisyphus’ struggle and failure to roll a boulder up a hill to illustrate the battle of one individual against Malaria. But this time, with the help of a community working together, things end up a little differently.
