"Stolen Youth: Inside the Cult at Sarah Lawrence" is a Hulu docuseries, telling the story of a group of students who got influenced and manipulated by conman Larry Ray from its beginning in 2010 until its recent developments.

I had the chance to develop the visual language and animate several sequences for the first episode, "The Arbiter of Truth". Inspired by the actual doodles and notes of the students, the style is sketchy and raw, using a mix of pen and pencils on paper and digital hand-drawn animation.
See a selection of animated scenes down below.
