We make amazing animations! We create very thought-provoking and charming short films and explainer videos to help the world understand autism.
We've won awards for our "powerful and urgent films".
Our films really explain everything about autism! Everyone will take away different things from them.
See the world from the perspective of The Girl With The Curly Hair, the autistic character, as she tries to live and work in a neurotypical society.
Our videos are available for our Subscribers, if you are not a subscriber to The Curly Hair Project, please click here.
“The animations provide an insight into the inner thoughts, feelings and experiences of someone who has autism. The script, scenes, speech and thought bubbles all convey the struggle to understand aspects of everyday life that are confusing and often overwhelming. At the end of watching each animation there is a feeling of “I understand now” and a greater appreciation of what it is like to have autism. The animations will be invaluable for parents and teachers from primary and secondary school as well as University lecturers. Those who have autism will resonate with the central character and want everyone to watch the animation that describes their day.”
These animated clips show how people may react and deal with situations that occur in their everyday life. This could be going to school, commuting to work, socialising or even going to the gym. Please scroll using the arrows below to view our Short Clips.
These videos explain our unique theories and concepts in a very easy to understand way.
