Stand Up Planet TV Documentary

Purpose: to augment information from the video content presented by comedians.

As a member of the digital team at KCET we developed the WordPress website and created content for the Stand Up Planet is a documentary TV show and digital campaign. We augmented video clips from the comedians’ stand up routines with animation. To complement the video clips we designed companion infographics which addressed serious societal issues of HIV/AIDS, nutrition, sexual health and sanitation. Below are samples from the website.
