Kids Across North America Colored Over 3,000 Frames to Illustrate an Animated Music Video

Posted On: Jul 10, 2019   |   Posted By: Colossal

An animated music video for Meg Myers ' cover of a Kate Bush song brings kid's coloring books to life. Director Jo Roy first filmed Myers on a green screen, performing the crawling, climbing, and flying shown in the music video. Then, each of the 3,202 frames was printed off as a black and white coloring book page. Elementary school-aged children from ten schools and an art program in the U.S. and Canada colored the pages however they wanted, with a provided crayon color palette.
Over 2,100 kids contributed to the resulting animation, which features Myers exploring the universe as a metamorphosing moth. Within the provided black contour lines, scribbled-in tulips and imaginatively shaded planets form the backdrop for the singer's winged journey. You can see more of Roy's directorial and dance work on her website , and listen to Meg Myers on Soundcloud .
