The Question Is (2015 Award Winner)
Inspired by Shane Koyczan’s collaborative video animation project, "To this Day", Marisa Vitiello, Adobe Youth Voices Mentor (Seattle), set out to create a collaborative video within our AYV community. She commissioned poet/musician Hollis Wong-Wear to write a poem for the project and then split up the poem into phrases, which she assigned to participating teachers to distribute to their youth. Students from eight schools in 3 countries (US, Canada and England) created visuals to illustrate the poem using a variety of tools including stop motion animation, After Effects, Flash and video. This video was compiled using a new Adobe App called Clip, which allows collaborators to put their media directly on a timeline shared by the group. The resulting video is a rich tapestry about the difficult question of how to grow up.
