Imaginary Friend Society

Uni helps her friends understand chemotherapy in this animated short film.

RPA Advertising approached StarBeast with a GREAT idea. An inspirational idea. They wanted to create animated films to support children with brain tumors and their families. We said–we’d be honored…

RPA worked with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation to gather the talents of 16 animation studios around the world. The goal: to create 20 animated short films that could both educate and comfort children with brain tumors. Our small, but mighty team of 8 at StarBeast had the honor of creating one of these films. StarBeast donated its time and talents to these films, and so did many of our partners. We are so proud to be a part of the Imaginary Friends Society project.
