Nelson Mandela Foundation
'The Power of Words'
Designed by Andrew van der Westhuyzen
Directed by Andrew van der Westhuyzen and Co-directed with Nabil Elderkin and Gregory Stern

Andrew worked with director Nabil Elderkin and writer Gregory Stern to produce an animated typographic piece for Times Square NY, Tribeca Film Festival and the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

The project involved creating a number of animated pieces using selected quotes of Nelson Mandela over his lifetime. It was timed to coincide with Mandela’s 95th birthday and was part of the Midnight Moment: A Digital Gallery event.

Special thanks to Method Studios Australia for initial animation concepting.
