“We’re trying to establish ourselves as having the ability to work with a variety of clients, and with a variety of sources,” Paulsen said. “We want students to leave here and immediately be able to work at that caliber.”
The video will be filmed using stop-motion animation combined with an elaborate series of cityscapes and 28 handmade, wooden puppets. Filming will likely begin in the coming days and continue for the next two to three weeks.
Paulsen said Bethany is not charging money for the video, but will be able to keep all of the props. In addition, students in the course are also creating a music video for a Texas-based string band, White Ghost Slivers, and a branding campaign for Drive A Tank in Kasota.
