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 served as the lead video producer for the project, and created 9 distinct 20-40min modules that aimed to teach teens age 14 -16 with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their parents, about employment.

The teens’ content was embedded in a larger “space” narrative, and delivered in character-led interactive videos.

In my role, I produced content (e.g., overseeing workflow; recruiting artists and actors); wrote scripts; created storyboards and animations; and directed, voiced and edited content. I worked closely with Jaclyn Loewen on backgrounds and Spencer Soares on characters.
