Stop Motion Sunday: Yellow Sticky Notes


This week’s stop motion animation inspiration was done over something we regularly use but also sometimes hate: sticky notes, lots and lots, and lots of them!

Done entirely in black ink pen drawings over 2,300 yellow sticky notes, the 2007 stop motion work by animation filmmaker Jeff Chiba Stearns was inspired by his own busy life, “after realizing that yellow sticky note ‘to do’ lists were consuming his life.” Stearns describes Yellow Sticky Notes as a visual reflection on his filmmaking journey by animating on the same sticky notes that caused him to ignore major world events for the last nine years."

Stearns’ animated short won the Prix du Public at the prestigious Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival, was selected in over 80 international film festivals, and bagged 10 more awards. Stearns tells more about his award-winning work here.
