Ambitious About Autism is the national charity for children and young people with autism. They provide services at their schools and colleges; and raise awareness and understanding about autism.
We created an animation and documentary for a fundraising event at TalkTalk, to help explain autism itself and the work that the charity does. For the animation by using characters to tell the story, we were able to convey emotion and explain the problems that children and young people with autism can come across in their every day life. With voiceover and on-screen text, we highlighted the key messages that the charity wanted to convey, in how the funding they receive can help make the ordinary possible. For the documentary we spent a day following an Ambitious College student, Conor, in his daily activities at home and at the college.
