Benjamin Giroux, a 10 year old autistic boy from New York, wrote a poem called "I Am Odd" for a school project. The poem went viral and It inspired this song using Ben's lyrics. A talented young 2D animator, Rory Russell, was approached to tell Ben's story in a simple animated music video to help raise autistic acceptance.

Like many others, I was touched by 10 year old Ben’s poem and was thrilled to get the opportunity to create characters for this animated song project.
