From conception to completion, VOTE 2013 is a handcrafted stopmotion created as a public service anouncemnt for the second largest televison channel in Pakistan, SAMAA TV. Every aspect of this stopmotion was meticulously created, from the wooden props, stage and paint to lighting rigs and foley sounds all the way to the 8 foot camera track/move, each element was hand-built by us with the help of Pakistan’s genius carpenters. It was all shot in stop-motion to show how frame by frame, brick by brick we can resurrect the fortunes of Pakistan.
I hope it inspires every Pakistani to go out and make an informed and educated vote!
