Travelers “Unfinished Stories: The Tree House” by Guilherme Marcondes

In an effort to reduce traffic fatalities caused by distracted drivers, Travelers Insurance and TBWA\Chiat\Day New York commissioned a series of animated films imagining unfinished chapters in the lives of actual victims.

In one these films called “The Tree House,” LOBO director Guilherme Marcondes uses a mix of stop motion and digital animation to detail the heart-wrenching story of 61-year-old Howard Stein who was struck on the side of the road by a driver tending to her GPS.

Not-so-fun fact: Distracted driving kills at least nine people and injures over 1,000 more each day in the US alone.
