Honoring a Public Servant via Animation

 

Animation about a determined public servant who does things his way. DAVID honors accomplishments and eccentricities of Oregon municipal Internet pioneer David Olson. Inspired by wry animation classics such as BAMBI VS GODZILLA, video premiered on David Olson Day in the City Of Portland — the day Olson announced his retirement. DAVID was written and produced by Mary Beth Henry, animated by Noah Dorsey, directed by Sheldon Renan, and edited by Joseph Landeene, with sound by Tony Evans and Keith Thomas. Jason Tait executive produced for Portland Community Media.

Thanks to Mary Beth Henry, Portland Office of Communication Technology deputy director for passing along this gem.
