Xika vs. Disinformation is a vibrant 2D animated short created by us at Clubcamping as a passion project fully self-funded with the support of Instituto Vero to educate on the perils of disinformation. The project follows our heroine Xika on a mission to defeat villains spreading fake news.
With a distinctive Latin American visual style, the short uses visual metaphors and exaggerated animation to represent how disinformation warps reality.
