 A Better Life Foundation

Educating potential donors is an important element to the ABLF team. 

We created three short edits for them to assist in their presentations and build their social media and website presence.  
Below is the seven minute version:


Here is a short film we created, inspired by the city of Ouagadougou,

The Great Connector

We partnered with Drumming For Your Life Institute to produce a documentary pilot for a series
focusing on their teachers, students, and programs.

 Voice For The Animals Foundation

Voice For The Animals Foundation is devoted to creating respect and empathy for
animals through education, rescue, legislation, and advocacy.
SmashWerks teamed up with VFTA to help spread awareness for Billy the elephant currently residing at the LA Zoo.
VFTA is fighting for Billy to be transferred to a sanctuary as they and many others believe that
Billy's health and mental well-being is being compromised.

Below are two keynote edits that have been assisting in the fight to free Billy:

We are continuing to work with VFTA on this case. This ongoing project is dedicated to defending animal rights and spreading the message of inhumane treatment of animals around the world.
