A Canadian Anijam

Spotted this recently – the first Canadian Anijam. An Anijam is a collaboration of animators to create a cohesive piece. In this case 15 Canadian animators produced Yellow Sticky Notes~Canadian Anijam.  These animators are spread out over the whole country.  Each worked on their own component, independent of the others , without knowing what the others were creating for their sequences. The prompt for  these sequences was to self reflect on one day of their lives using only 4×6 inch yellow sticky notes, a black pen and animation meditation. Starting with a ‘to do’ list written on the day of a memorable event, the animators transitioned from text to imagery by utilizing ‘animation meditation’ to create a visually animated poem.
