I met Jane Goodall in LA on the 22nd Feb to collaborate on a personal message for Earth Day. We interviewed & recorded her many remarkable experiences with a view to animating sections of them. It became clear to me this was an extraordinary woman, with a steely glint of determination in her eye that still burns bright. The mandate was clear- The Earth is a miracle and we all have a duty to care for it.
I tried my best to bring her stories of childhood, chimpanzees, rainforests and wisdom to life. I couldn't think of anything more important than celebrating life through colour, design and movement- attributes the natural world continue to amaze me with every day.
Thank you Jane.
