Animated Imagination with Jeff Chiba Stearns

Uploaded on Monday 7 January 2013

DESCRIPTION

A short documentary on the animated imagination of independent animator and filmmaker, Jeff Chiba Stearns, by Opus Art Supplies (http://www.opusartsupplies.com). Director, Ryan Mund sat down with Jeff to discuss his films, what drives him to create, and how important it is for artists to stay motivated.

Jeff Chiba Stearns is a Vancouver based, multi award-winning animation and documentary filmmaker. His love of pen, paper, and story is the driving force behind his creative pursuits as he continually strives to inspire others to create. Known for his award-winning animated short Yellow Sticky Notes, Jeff pushed his creative boundaries as an animator when he took upon the task of animating the whole film on Post-It notes.

After the wide success of the film, Jeff knew he wanted to return to this idea of animating on Post-It notes. So he brought together 15 of Canada’s most acclaimed and recognized animators and got each of them to create a 20 second animated piece on sticky notes. The result is the myriad of styles and points of view that encompasses his newest film, Yellow Sticky Notes: Canadian Anijam, which set to be released this year.

    I never did find 4x6 yellow Post-It Notes where I live, but I did find 3x5 yellow Post-it Notes. Maybe I should've bought them.
