Charming animated short on The Power of Privacy

The Power of Privacy is a brisk animated jaunt through the legal development of privacy, starting with the fireplace chimney.

Animator Matthias Hoegg asks:

Can privacy really still exist in a world where we are continuously connected to the internet?
I directed these animated sequences for co-director Callum Cooper's D&AD Yellow Pencil winning documentary series "The Power of Privacy" for The Guardian. The series explores the potential as well as the limits of privacy today. The animations establish the historical context and key themes for each episode of the series.
