NationSwell had me create this animation as part of a three-part video series on the U.S. opioid crisis.
While reading firsthand accounts, I noticed that survivors often described their overdose experience as a sensation of drowning. I thought this would be an honest and effective visual metaphor to carry our animated story. I hope that this series will help bring attention to the hardworking folks who are fighting for better access to resources like Naloxone.
