Animated explainers on fake news, internet trolls, bots, algorithms and manipulations on the web.
These informative and entertaining video explainers throw a spotlight on several aspects related to propaganda and fake news on the internet. Throughout a series of eight, illustrative animations, our two protagonists – Misha and Ivan – treat the target audience of Russian-speaking Eastern Europeans aged 15-25 to a wide variety of background information on this pressing topic.
m box created, designed and animated the entire series (overall runtime: approx. 20 mins), using three distinct colours – reddish pink, blue and yellow – as a common thread. Throughout the videos, their superimposition generates further hues, while a steady stream of tiny glitches like bars and squares not only shakes up the animations, but also keeps reminding us that we live in an ever-changing – and changeable – digital world.
