I am the owner of photographycourse.net. Our goal is to inspire and educate people about photography.
The current big project we are working at is a '365 days' challenge/course. The idea is that you go through 1 module a day (a bitesize module per day). If you endure the 365 days, you got good fundamentals to become a fantastic photographer.
To make people excited to enrol, I want to create a small story of why photography allows you to do something meaningful and how it can make the world a better place. It's a craft to be proud of with a lot of opportunities.
The way I see the animation is the projection of photographers in different situations (Underwater, Extreme Sports, Wedding, Family, Historical Events, Street Photography, Cinematic Photography,..). To showcase what you can become. A style we love is similar to this video from Steve Cutts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7LDk4D3Q3U (our video won't be "dark" though").
We have a script ready, this will be shared as soon as we come to an agreement.
Style of the characters in the animation should look like the pdf attached from the podcast.
