The Atlantic: Speech Wars

The Atlantic: The Speech Wars

The Atlantic approached me to help create the first video in their new series entitled “Speech Wars.” Using an interview with Lata Nott, the executive director of the First Amendment Center, I tried to create a world in which the issue of democratic discussion in the digital age was felt and experienced by smaller, energetic characters.

This video is part of The Speech Wars, a project of The Atlantic, and is supported by the Charles Koch Foundation, the Reporters Committee for the Freedom of the Press, and the Fetzer Institute.
