What is Help for Heroes?

British servicemen and women who have been
wounded or injured in the line of duty. Help for
Help for Heroes also support families of the
By the end of their first year, the foundation had
raised a total of £674,000!
Help for Heroes is now Britain’s largest
organisation for helping servicemen and
Our final idea is a serving soldier who
unfortunately gets blinded in battle from
an exploding bomb. which forces him to
retire from duty. The blinded soldier is
unable to find a job due to his disability
and struggles with life back at home. With
the support from Help for Heroes, the
soldier is provided with a guide dog and
weekly benefits from the council all thanks
to the help of Help for Heroes.

We first thought of the idea to do this animation with Lego,
which we thought would appeal to children and make
them want to help the army as much as possible. We then
thought out how we would see the Lego and it came
across a bit comical and didn’t send out a lot of emotion
and sympathy. That’s when white board animation came
into thought. By drawing this animation we can get more
emotion and sympathy across then Lego.
So for our animation he have decided to use white board
animation. We feel this choice of animation is our strongest
option as we have a good artist (tom) in our group. The
way we will complete our animation is of course drawing
our scenes and taking a picture from a birds-eye view after
each sketch within the scene.
Our target audience for our animation will
be anyone who is willing to donate any
money, big or small amounts to Help for
Heroes. We feel our animation will
encourage everyone of any age as our
animation will send out a sympathetic feel
towards to audience.
