Animatus Cartoon Teaches Fire Safety
We at Animatus are particularly proud of our recent collaboration with HomeFireDrill.org. “Help Mikey Make It Out” is an interactive cartoon designed to teach young children about what to do when the smoke alarm goes off.
We worked with illustrator Jennifer Glanton, who had designed the characters for the book, “Mikey Makes a Mess.” Our animator, Mike Boas, took the designs and new backgrounds into Flash to color and animate. The result is a unique choose-your-own-adventure style experience.
