For Simon Robson, Tim Rayner and a slew of other collaborators, what started as conversation and sketches is now coming to life in the form of “Coalition of the Willing.” To quote the site, which launched yesterday:
“Coalition of The Willing” is a film that discusses how we can use new internet technologies to leverage the powers of activists, experts, and ordinary citizens in collaborative ventures to combat climate change.
Rayner and Robson first announced their project at F5 last spring in New York City. Since then, they’ve assembled an impressive array of talent from around the world, all joined together in an effort to create positive change through the power of animation and collaboration.
Drawing on his past experience creating viral hits like “What Barry Says” and working as animation director on the BAFTA-nominated “Taking Liberties,” Robson took on the roles of director and producer, while also finding time to animate his own sections of the film.
To get the full story behind the project, I donned my dorky headset and conducted a Skype interview with Robson. Watch it below or on Vimeo.
