Investment Rationale: Animation does a great job of taking emotionally heavy and violent subject matters (like the genocide in 1984 and the hate crimes following 9/11) and show them in a way that is easier for the audience to watch and understand. There are very few animated short films made each year and, therefore, these films are more likely to receive attention online, at film festivals, and even at the Oscars.
