Project of the Day: Stop-Motion “EarthHeart”

Project of the Day: Stop-Motion "EarthHeart"

Here’s your daily dose of an indie film in progress; at the end of the week, you’ll have the chance to vote for your favorite.

In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.


Tweetable Logline:

The animated tale of the Earth’s heart as it travels through the world of human corruption.

Elevator Pitch:

An environmental manifesto about the journey the Earth’s heart takes as it travels through human hands who abuse, corrupt and destroy it along the way. A visually stunning work with a social message. And who doesn’t like stop-motion animation?

Production Team:

Writer/Director: JohnBen Lacy

About the Production:

“I’ve had this in my head for a while. We are all responsible for actions that slowly destroy our planet, some of which cannot be negated. It is my hope that after releasing EarthHeart, it will help raise awareness of our part in helping make the world a better place. By choosing to make small changes in your daily life, some of which required no extra effort, we can at least help to slow the destruction of the Earth. I chose stop-motion because I think it serves to capture the imagination and hold attention while the message is delivered.” — JohnBen Lacy

Current Status:

In Production.
