“What’s Up With Everyone” is a series of animations by Aardman and The University of Nottingham.
It’s a series of short animations about issues affecting young peoples’ mental health. It explores issues including perfectionism, loneliness, isolation, competitiveness, independence and social media:
EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO FIT IN SO EASILY. I FEEL SO ALONE.
I DIDN’T GET THE GRADES I WANTED, I’M SUCH A FAILURE.
I’M SO STRESSED, TRYING TO BE THE BEST AT EVERYTHING.
WHY DON’T I LOOK LIKE THAT ON INSTA?
THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY DECISIONS TO MAKE.
Each animation lasts less than a minute.
You can watch a playlist of the animations here:
