The YMCA of the Triangle’s 2018 annual celebration was about “The Power of Us”, an event celebrating the twenty-five years of building people. Strong relationships among staff, volunteers and donors have been the foundation for the YMCA’s innovative work in the Triangle community over the years.

For this project, we aimed to highlight those connections and diversity with an engaging character animation. The end result is a fantastic video about community and friendships—something we all cherish.
