Rollingball partnered with Awabakal Co-Operative to create an animated film to raise awareness of Eustachian tube health within the Indigenous community. When our client Markeeta arrived at the office with a sketch on paper and a vision of a character who uses music to communicate such a significant issue, we were inspired and challenged by the project. The animation features a beat boxing L’il Mike who informs and educates the audience about the issue with his lyrics.
We were really proud when Listen Up! won the 2015 NEWi Award for Best Online Video of the Year. In 2014, it was also nominated for an ATOM Award in the Best Indigenous Resource category.
