We created this video for FARM USA to show many of the standard practices of animal farming.

Dive Deeper is the interactive component and accompaniment to The Water Brothers series, a television show on TVO that follows Alex and Tyler Mifflin as they take their audience around the globe to uncover issues affecting water sources. Based on the weekly topic of the show, our team designed individual interactive stories that work as a supplement to educate the Water Brothers audience. This is done through the creation of scrollable stories, which are accessible across a variety of mobile, tablet, and desktop platforms.
Take a look at the stories at The Water Brothers website.
All seven episodes of The Water Brothers Season 3 are up on their website! Time to binge watch and learn about all things water, from overfishing, to water in space, and everything in between!
We really enjoyed working with Alex and Tyler, creating animations for their TV show, as well as interactive web stories to help their audience learn more about the problems facing water sources and how to become part of the solution.

Over time we have grown to offer more and this video helps explain the importance of the work IISD Reporting Services engages in.”
