Hornet directing team Moth partners with Facebook to create a film spotlighting their Community Standards, an effort to better build a safe and productive community for its more than 2 billion members. Incorporating uniquely illustrated animation and considered narrative choices, Moth is perfectly suited to direct this film as it tackles complex and very human experiences while maintaining a levity as it distills digestible information.
"We are excited by the evolution of how we continue to develop and tell stories with Facebook" says Moth. This piece was produced out of Hornet's NYC studio, adding to the growing number of films in Hornet’s ongoing collaboration with Facebook Factory and Facebook’s product teams.
