Only a Child

Stop-Motion (Claymation)


We contributed two clips to this wonderful project about climate change by Simone Giampaolo.
The girl in the crowd was animated in digital 2D, with a crayon design and for the boy and the father we used claymation.
«Only a Child» is a visual poem created by over 25 animation artists/directors under the artistic supervision of Simone Giampaolo, which gives shape and colour to the original words spoken by Severn Cullis-Suzuki at the UN Summit in Rio in 1992, a child’s desperate call to action for the future of our planet. An omnibus film celebrating the youth environmental movement 30 years in the making.
