Sharing our story through powerful animations

Website slider

This year, Lighthouse Foundation have had the opportunity to create meaningful video content by collaborating with animation talent from two extraordinary Melbourne-based studios. During this time, we have produced three wonderful short animations with Sketch Group and Studio Pancho.

Lighthouse approached Studio Pancho and Sketch Group with an ambitious brief to produce three visual narratives with no budget! We were deeply moved when both studios generously agreed to donated their time, skills and expertise to produce these special projects. Production included a wide range of support from story boarding to script writing, character design, sound production and animation.

The first of the animations from Sketch Group called ‘The Lighthouse Way’ perfectly captures our unique care approach, providing an overview of the organisation as a whole, as well as touching on our humble beginnings. Sketch Group’s talented team of copywriters, illustrators, and animators brought their own unique style to the project to bring the Lighthouse story to life. This unique hand-drawn animation will be an important resource for Lighthouse Foundation for many years to come, providing a useful tool for us to share with community groups, schools, businesses and corporate partners.

The second of our projects is a two-part animated series from Pancho Studios called ‘Shoes’ and ‘The Roof’ that tells the stories of two of Lighthouse’s therapeutic interventions. Whilst the stories are entirely true, the subjects have been de-identified to protect the identities of our children. They are beautiful visual pieces, which deal with the delicate nature of trauma with the sensitivity the subject deserves, whilst creatively paying homage to the care teams unique and thorough approach.

All of these films were generous pro-bono contributions from both studios, and it has been Lighthouse’s dream to have the opportunity to bring these stories to life.
