The client, UNISON Scotland, had this to say about the animated video:

“I absolutely love it! I am really in awe of the quality and sensitivity you have brought to the project. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you and to see that quality that you produce! The committee are also very happy with the animation, thank you so much! This year I’ve had the pleasure of working with Anders on a key resource for UNISON’S Year of Black Workers campaign. Anders has helped create an anti-racism resource, helping to examine and explain racism and racial discrimination in the workplace. It has been a sensitive project and he has shown sensitivity, compassion and dedication to bringing our animation to fruition. I was a complete novice to this process and he has shown amazing patience and understanding in helping bring my ideas to life. He also showed outstanding determination and diligence in meeting changing deadlines. I would recommend him to you with no hesitation and I am already starting discussions with him about a second project. Thank you Anders, I look forward to working with you again in 2024.”
