Director Chel White helms this intricately beautiful public service announcement for the American Indian College Fund and ad agency Wieden + Kennedy. Based on the fact that American Indians are the most under-served group in the United States when it comes to education, traditional Indian beads are used as metaphor. A single yellow bead leads hundreds then thousands of other beads to take action, build momentum and together create exquisite images from Native American folk art. Inspired by the contemporary art of Marcus Amerman, with music by Neil Young. The project was created using primarily CG animation, often with thousands of individual objects, as well as stop-motion animation that bookends this 30-second film.
