"Explainer animation videos" are the latest trend on the web to get out a message in a fun and memorable way. They help reframe a person's understanding of an issue by showing the material in a different context and from a different perspective. Because mainstream media and gay activists have so effectively misrepresented sexual orientation change efforts and the work of Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, it is essential to present accurate information on the subject in a different way.
The National Task Force for Therapy Equality (NTFTE), a coalition of psychotherapists, psychiatrists, physicians, public policy organizations, and clients who experience unwanted same-sex attractions and gender identity conflicts, are grateful for the intellectual contributions of Dr. Joseph Nicolosi and have determined that one effective way to honor his legacy is to develop a series of short explainer animation videos. These videos are intended to help overcome misinformation currently out there both about the underlying causes and the available strategies available to assist those with unwanted same-sex attractions.Dr Nicolosi’s approach to helping clients deal with their unwanted same-sex attraction included examining pivotal points in their development, so each of the 5 videos will be designed to powerfully and succinctly address many of the most common misunderstandings concerning questions surrounding reduction of unwanted SSA as well as exploration and development of heterosexuality. Each 5 to 6-minute animation will focus on a different aspect of the issues surrounding same-sex attraction and present a verbal and visual approach to understanding them.
The five planned videos will discuss and animate the following:
(1) The causes of homosexuality
(2) What does sexual orientation change mean?
(3) Ten celebrities who have gone from gay relationships to straight relationships
(4) The difference between conversion therapy and reparative [reintegrative] therapy
(5) A quick summary of the science of sexual orientation change
While illustrating the complex issues around same-sex attraction, these animations will do so briefly, sharply, and simply. They are intended to engage viewers’ attention by presenting information widely available but showing it from a fresh perspective. It is hoped that this fresh perspective will broaden the viewers understanding of the issues.
Expert professional animators have agreed to create these short videos as a way to honor the memory of Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, a pioneer in treating those with unwanted same-sex attraction. They are intended to engage viewers’ minds quickly and break through the misinformation disseminated by the mainstream media. By creating such original content, the producers are able to leap frog over the traditional gatekeepers of information (the media elites and politicians) in order to get the message out directly to the public.
The goal is $15,000.00 for the series. Each video will cost approximately $3,000.00.
All donors of $50.00 or more will receive a digital copy of each of the 5 animated videos once they are released.
