It’s World Aids Day: Meet “Karate Dick”
Milan motion studio Antimatter punches out a little martial arts humor to mark World Aids Day 2017 with a safe sex message for UNAIDS, the Joint United Nations Program on HIV and AIDS.
Animator/AD Emanuele Colombo at Antimatter: “Thanks to major progress in medical treatments, HIV is no longer the death sentence it used to be and is now a chronic disease.
“Paradoxically, HIV is coming back because of the loss of awareness due to the success of the therapy, especially among the youth.”
