StoryCorps – The Great Thanksgiving Listen

Character Animation, Featured Projects, Illustrations, Kirart Production, Motion Graphics 2015

Building on the style of illustrations created for the StoryCorps App, I directed this animated video for THE GREAT THANKSGIVING LISTEN.

Join the movement to pause, listen, and honor the voices of a generation by interviewing a loved one. Sit down with a grandparent or other elder, a friend, neighbor, or anyone else who means something to you, and ask them questions about their life. Who are you? How do you want to be remembered? What stories and wisdom will you share with me? And then listen.
It’s simple. Download the free StoryCorps app (available at storycorps.me), choose your questions, follow the built-in prompts, and with one tap, upload and preserve your interview for future generations at the Library of Congress.
