Video for the YCN Childline competition 2019.
Childline is a free, private and confidential service where young people can be themselves. Whatever their worry, whenever they need help, however, they want to get in touch.
My idea behind this animation was to show dark thoughts as an inner demon talking to the boy. The demon who follows the boy makes him sad, depressed, insecure. Once the boy decides to text Childline, the inner demon disappears as the boy knows he is no longer alone with the issues he has to deal with - he has Childline, people who would always listen, support him and advise further steps of his life.
