Climate Matters video contest winners: Green to Blue


Climate Matters video contest winners: Green to Blue

This is the first post in a series featuring the winners of the Climate Matters video contest. Each post will feature the video (of course) and a short note from their creators telling us why they entered the contest, their inspirations for their videos, etc.

Artist Elizabeth Klein tied for third place with her stop-motion animation Green to Blue:

From Elizabeth:

I entered the Climate Matters contest because I think it has such a great message and idea behind it. A contest where people where competing to be heard by Congress and our presidential candidates about our climate was something I felt like I definitely needed to get in on.

I wanted to use bright colors and friendly characters to create a world that everyone, especially children, would want to be a part of. It was important that viewers would relate this to their own world and what they love about it. I needed to send a direct message with a very clear cause and effect. Climate change is so much more intricate and complicated than I could ever show in a one-minute video, but the goal was to convey the overall emotion.

Congratulations again to Elizabeth for her excellent video! You can view all four winning entries here and the other 12 finalists at the Climate Matters finalists page on Vimeo.
