Discus Thrower at the Olympics

PASCH-net is an initiative that arouses interest and enthusiasm for Germany, motivates young people to learn German and has established a worldwide network of schools. In the context the 2020 Olympic Games, PASCH-net has developed an interactive campaign. In this campaign, a discus is thrown into a country, e.g. the USA. Now American German students have the opportunity to tell something about the Olympic Games in their country. From there, the discus is thrown to many other countries. My task was to illustrate and animate a female athlete throwing the discus for PASCH-net’s Instagram channel. The result was an animation that was modified for each country by changing colours and covers.
