About the Animation


The HPV vaccination campaign includes an animation of an existing comic book aimed at young Indigenous people. The comics (one for boys and one for girls) discuss the current vaccination program for the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and its importance of targeting young people in the 14 – 16 year old age group.

HITnet rolled out the animation across its network of information kiosks throughout Australia, from cities to remote Aboriginal communities, as well as online.

We recorded the vocal characterisations in Relativity Studios in Wollongong.


Comic book created by Deadly Vibe.

Producers: Helen Travers and Julie Gibson.

Vocal characterisations director: Simon Luckhurst.

Comic book funded by the Immunise Australia Program and the Australian Government.
