'Will Winning The Lottery Make You Happy?'

An animated lesson for the renowned TED-Ed series.

A TED-Ed commissioned video to accompany their lesson about hedonic adaptation and how it relates to people who have won the lottery.
“When I came on board, the script was locked and the VO was already recorded. From there, the brief was wide open. They really seemed to be open to any aesthetic approach as long as it accurately supported the educational content in a way that was appropriate for their audience.”
