To celebrate Desert School's 75th anniversary, the largest credit union in Arizona launched a forthcoming year-long campaign centered around giving back to the local community. Deemed the Shine On campaign, the centerpiece of the plan will feature a small number of local non-profits competing for a $30,000 grand prize.

In conjunction with Blind Society, and the artwork of Shaw Nielsen, Nick and I built a fully animated 3D world layered with 2D character animation. It was a lot of fun to breath life into this song while trying to maintain all the nuances of the lyrical tribute.
