Project Description

Criminal Justice – Candy Murder Investigation Training
Kaplan University – School of Criminal Justice

Challenge: Kaplan University’s School of Criminal Justice was interested in developing a tool to teach students what to look for during a homicide

Solution: Illumen Group developed an eight-part story that students would watch and then provide feedback on what they learned. The story, told through a simulated news program, begins with the death of megastar Candy. Each part of the story unfolds details what the police have discovered about the crime scene, including interviews, and information about Candy’s life. Each part ends by asking the student questions about the facts that have been revealed. The overall look and feel is told in an animated comic book style with voice over narration, sound effects, and music.
