Compassion is Key in this Animated Short About Depression

Overcomer is an animated short by Hannah Spangler, who created it for her Experimental Animation class at KVCC. Spangler had this to say about the short:

This was a very personal project for me as it touches on my anxiety and depression a couple years ago. Thank God I’ve gotten through those dark times. I’m hoping this film will impact others in a positive way.

 
In it, Spangler explores the weight of negative self-talk, and the power of compassion. Compassion can be a powerful tool for overcoming negative self-talk — and as it turns out, all that negativity isn’t usually as motivating as it seems.
