The TYDE Project

The TYDE Project (Transitioning Youth with Disabilities and Employment — more info at mytyde.ca) is led by Dr. Rachelle Hole from The Center for Inclusion and Citizenship at UBCO.

I’m the lead video producer for the project, creating content that will teach teens age 14  -16 with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their parents, about employment.

While the parent videos will be simple explainer-style videos to be hosted on the Tapestry Tool, the teens’ content will be embedded in a larger “space” narrative, and delivered in character-led interactive videos.

I’m currently writing scripts, creating storyboards and animations, directing, voicing and editing content for the project, and am working with Spencer Soares to develop a fun, immersive visual experience for the teens.

An early prototype for the content can be seen here: tyde-focusprototy.png
