A Public Service Video on Fireworks Safety

Project Summary

The American Academy of Ophthalmology is a refreshing medical organization that wanted to reach a wider audience through motiongraphic videos. Thousands of people, many of them children, injure their eyes from fireworks each year in the United States. This piece supported AAO’s EyeSmart campaign, and was created to raise awareness about fireworks safety. The piece took on a life of its own with engaging characters–Suzy the Sparkler and Freddy the Firecracker–and deals with safety methods people can take to avoid eye injury.
