The Shock Doctrine Documentary Animation

Renowned director and friend of Foreign Office Alfonso Cuarón approached us to make a short film based on Naomi Klein’s book The Shock Doctrine. In it, Klein uncovers the use of shock and torture by the US government, and we relished the opportunity to help make her revelations public. The documentary premiered at the Venice Film Festival 2007.

Below the movie check out a few of my concept illustrations and outtakes.
