Animation = Brilliant Storytelling

If you’ve ever listened to a StoryCorps interview, you know exactly what I mean when I say that it “hits the spot” — and I’m referring to that emotional spot. Even the toughest person will likely find their eyes watering because the conversations are just so heartfelt. Sometimes they’re profound, sometimes they’re not — but what makes them special and inspirational is that they’re real people sharing their relationships and life experiences.

StoryCorps recently launched its first animated short, “Q&A” — which in my opinion, amplifies the impact of their standard interviews. By adding visual context through the art of animation, the viewer can connect with the people revealing their stories on a new, creative level.

Watch and see for yourself:
