Donald Trump: Rise of a Dictator?
Animated video warning of the threat of authoritarianism under Trump
In the modern world we've seen leaders like Hugo Chavez, Robert Mugabe, and Ferdinand Marcos win power through free elections and then use this position of power to destroy the very democracies that elected them. In the aftermath of the 2016 election, we wanted to warn Americans about the danger of this outcome at home. We produced this video entirely in-house – concept, writing and animation.
We decided on a photo-collage style for the animation, using stark black and white with red and yellow accents, to highlight the connection to familiar historical events.
