Morro Creative was honoured to animate two complete songs for The Secret Path project. Canadian icon Gord Downie (The Tragically Hip) released a ten song album, accompanied by a graphic novel illustrated by Jeff Lemire, that tells the story of Chanie Wenjack, a twelve year-old boy who died while trying to return home after escaping an Indian residential school in 1966. The novel was transformed into an animated television film directed by Justin Stephenson for broadcast on CBC. The full film can be viewed here.
