Political Neutrality: Whiteboard Animation 'Draws Out' Church Position (VIDEO)

Newsroom introduced a new way of talking about the issue of political neutrality today.

The concept of political neutrality is not new for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon). An explanation of the Church’s position has been on Newsroom for several years. But in an Internet age many people prefer a more immediate way to view and learn about topics and issues of the day than simply reading text.

Two months ago we produced an infographic called Mormonism 101 that received a lot of hits on the site and which was also shared widely among social networks, blogs and other media outlets. Similarly, a whiteboard animation can turn complex or abstract issues and ideas into a novel experience for the viewer.
