Working with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and RPA, Smith & Foulkes directed ‘Memory Loss.’ The film is part of a collection of animations help teach children about a wide range of cancer treatments in an engaging way that is easy to understand. The more children understand about their treatments, the less scary it is.
‘Memory Loss’ takes the form of the classic ‘Pairs / Concentration’ card game and teaches children about what they might experience in terms of their memory (during their illness and treatment) via the imaginary friends characters featured on each of the playing cards.
Smith & Foulkes note: “It was great to be involved with this cause and amazing body of work. We don’t get to do much work for kids and nice to think that although the priority is obviously to help them understand the issues, they might be half- playing the card game whilst watching”.
