Controlled Burning

Oregon’s landscapes were shaped by naturally occurring wildfire over thousands of years, yet after more than a century of preventing and suppressing natural fires, western dry forests are now dangerously overgrown. Carefully controlled burns keep our communities safe, preserve habitats, protect natural resources and ensure that our forests remain healthy.

The Nature Conservancy needed a public awareness campaign to reassure concerned Oregonians that controlled burning is not only safe, but necessary to restore a balance to Oregon’s natural ecosystems.

Combining natural, organic textures with a hand-wrought animation style and stark, visceral sound design, we sought to complement the sound science behind controlled burning by surrounding the viewer in the powerful beauty of the Oregon landscape.
