As part of Harvard Medical School’s Reflection in Action: Building Healthy Communities™ program, LineStorm Animation students from three different Boston Public Schools previsualized, designed and animated this hand-drawn educational short to emphasize four basic rules for a healthy lifestyle: 1. Eat a Good Diet. 2. Get Regular Exercise. 3. Keep Good Hygiene. 4. Get Enough Rest.
The participating Boston Public Schools were The Dearborn School, The Martin Luther King, Jr. School and The Boston Middle School Academy.
Pell Osborn of MotionArt Studios, Boston, supervised LineStorm Animation workshops at each school, for students ranging in age from 11 to 16. The students’ animation originates entirely on flipbooks, and streams at a rate of ten drawings for every second of screen time. The lively music, “Moving In,” was composed by John Murphy; it comes from the soundtrack of the film “Millions,” on a Milan CD #M2-36116, © 2005 Milan Entertainment, Inc. and is used for inspirational and educational purposes only.
We are all connected to one another and our environment, especially when it comes to our health. This relationship is so strong, there’s a name for it – One Health. source
