DfV the Sample Platter
2020 Reel - Short & Sweet
2020 has brought so much change to the world, but one thing has remained consistent: Our devotion to our mission of empowering and improving the lives of kids and families impacted by chronic mental and physical health conditions. Here's a look back at our work in 2020.
This animated clip is showcased in the Walt Disney Family Museum's virtual exhibit, honoring "It's a Small World." In today’s world, we can empower and support each other to be the heroes that we need; to lead by example, showing how we can all share love and hope. More than ever, we need to embrace what connects us by spreading kindness and mutual respect, and, most importantly, speaking the universal languages of understanding and love. It’s a small world after all. We submitted our animation for “It’s a Small World: A Virtual Community Art Exhibition” hosted by the Walt Disney Family Museum this past August, and it’s now part of their virtual exhibit!! If you'd like to take a walk through the virtual exhibit, please follow the link here: Waltdisney.org/smallworld All animation was done on a Wacom Cintiq Pro 16" with Toon Boom Harmony!

Join them as they learn how to cope with long days and anxiety, and come to understand how friendship can unlock even the toughest of situations.
Interview with Dr. Heather Yardley, PhD, Pediatric Psychologist, Subject Matter Expert
One of the things that makes Drawn from Valor unique is how we work with subject matter experts (SMEs) in the fields of medical and mental health to ensure our work is accurate, not just entertaining. In preparation for Mental Health Awareness Month we had the privilege of sitting down with Dr. Heather Yardley of Nationwide Children's Hospital to discuss what it's like to create our animated shorts, how we can all take care of our #mentalhealth during #COVID19, and what you can do if you need to take a quick break. Watch the video to see what we learned!
