In 1994, world class animators, UNICEF representatives, and animation industry leaders met in Orlando, Florida for a Second Animation for Development Workshop and Summit. As a result of this workshop, the book and video, both entitled Drawing Insight, were produced.
This richly illustrated anthology takes a broad look at the power of animation to communicate positive social and health messages to audiences worldwide. Drawing Insight presents the success stories of various broadcast and non-broadcast development communication and educational programs which drew on the power of animation to promote the well-being of children.
The book has chapters on a number of diverse topics, including: UNICEF productions in Bangladesh, the Caribbean and Somalia, Children's Television Workshop, ASIFA, Nickelodeon's view on kids, MTV's Animation Nation, training animators, merchandising, Captain Planet, African Animation, and much more.
Contributing authors include:
Nick Boxer, John Canemaker, Francine Desbiens, Roy Disney, Bruno Edera, Sayoko Kinoshita, Jessica Langford, Geraldine Laybourne, Kit Laybourne, Michel Ocelot, Charles Solomon, Michael Sporn, and Abby Terkuhle.

Drawing Insight the video provides a visual overview of the growing relationship between UNICEF messages and animation - from the 1960s when animation was first used for fund-raising, to the present day, when animation is being used to pass along life-saving messages. As told by leaders in the animation industry and developing country artists, Drawing Insight gives us a glimpse of the potential for this appealing art form to improve the lives of children everywhere. The video includes a detailed look at the development of two major regional UNICEF animation projects Meena in South Asia and Maximo in Ecuador and provides the viewer with a sense of the potential for improving children's lives through animation.
