About the video
” Stop frame animation is a relatively easy (yet time consuming!) way of creating a fun and engaging video.
Late last year I met with Michael Struwig, a youth forum participant and a very talented film maker, to assist me in creating this short video. We discussed styles and researched a lot of other videos using similar techniques. I wrote up a story board and sent out a request for support from some of the club members. Then in January, four enthusiastic members from Rhodes High School volunteered their time, on a precious Saturday, and stuck hundreds of post-it notes on the wall of our office and recorded their voices. And yes, before you ask, we are reusing the post-it notes and probably won’t run out until the year 2030. ” Daniel Robinson, Project 90 by 2030 Clubs Coordinator.
