Goal: To illustrate the problems with the status quo of the American legal system without viewers realizing they're watching a video about the status quo of the American legal system.
Challenge: Making a long script digestible in length and realistic to animate.
Solution: Ross & Friends! We organized the plot around Ross, our goofy host, and his cute little friends—the protagonists in our tales of the legal system gone ludicrously awry. Like an improv troupe on trial for making people laugh too hard (we kill ourselves!), we ad-libbed off the script whenever we found an opportunity for humor – like the hand-written comments that appear onscreen and the ridiculous things that live in Ross's closet, including his pet monster!
