Yellow Sticky Notes

Shorts in Competition: Documentary
| Canada | 6 MINUTES | English
After realizing that yellow sticky note "to-do" lists were consuming his life, animation filmmaker Jeff Chiba Stearns decided to visually self-reflect on his filmmaking journey by animating on the same sticky notes that caused him to ignore major world events for the last nine years. Image, text, and an original musical score by Genevieve Vincent are combined in this classically animated experimental film that was drawn with only a black ink pen on more than 2,300 yellow sticky notes.
