We were contacted by Toril Aalberg, social scientist and Professor at NTNU, on the occasion that the internation reseach project she is head of, «COST Action IS1308: Populist Political Communication in Europe», wanted to make a series of short animations for use in upper secondary schools in Europe. The goal is to teach youth about populist communication in European politics.

We made three short animations – which can also be viewed as one longer film – that show what happens when someone puts on the «populist glasses»: populists as communicators, the media and populism, and citizens and populism. In October 2017, «The Media and Populism» was awarded with a prize in the video- and poster competition during the EU Commision conference EU4FACTS.
