Work / Animation

Moth Collective works towards saving the rainforest, one animation at a time

Locked-up boys making friends with forest spiders, factually incorrect celebrity biographies and the climate security agenda are just a few strings to Moth Collective’s bow. The London-based collective graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2010, and its most recent project is Planet Under Pressure an animation produced for Global Canopy Programme, a think tank working to demonstrate the importance of safeguarding tropical forests.

The animation illustrates the interdependencies between water, energy and food and how this multiplies the threats to each. Produced with a great use of colour, texture and movement the story takes us through how issues affect everyday life, national culture and economies the world over. The film was written by Global Canopy Programme and the script makes for an informative and engaged guide through a well-paced and comprehensive animation.
