Flora and Sharon’s newest paper puppet video, The Animated Life of A.R. Wallace, aired on the New York Times just in time for Wallace Day (November 7th, 2013). This short video chronicles the colorful life of naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace, who is co-credited, along with Charles Darwin, with developing the theory of natural selection. The score is by the wonderful Sarah Lipstate/Noveller. HERE’S THE LINK TO THE PIECE ON THE NYT.
The video has garnered some positive publicity already. The Richard Dawkins Foundation blogged it, as did writer Elizabeth Gilbert (sorry it made you cry!), and the short is the Museum of the Moving Image’s Sloan Science and Film Video of the Week.
Thank you to everyone who has shared the film–please keep sharing!
