We need an RSA Animate-like video, about five minutes in length or less. We're not expecting the density, or necessarily the quality of the illustration demonstrated in the RSA Animate pieces, but it needs to be close! Someone with experience doing Common Craft-style illustrated videos would also be of interest.

Our project is focused on a similar, even allied, intellectual topic.
We're going to be explaining "systems thinking," especially as it pertains to preparing for global change like peak oil, economic collapse, and climate change. We'll be explaining the intimate connections that people and things have to one another, and the capabilities represented by those connections. We'll be talking about seeing the world as whole systems rather just as parts. We already have a rich store of metaphors and analogies, so you won't have to supply those. You provide the skill to take our analogies and make them visible on the screen.
