In a post about the project and Chaplain, Google doodler Ryan Germick wrote:
Chaplin is also one of my creative heroes. Despite being an art-obsessed high schooler preemptively bored by anything in black and white, I borrowed a VHS tape of Chaplin’s work from the library on a lark. It’s not an exaggeration to say watching it changed my life. I laughed, I cried—I cried from laughter. For the first time I realized the power of visual storytelling.
I love this photo of one of the storyboards used by the Google creative team to make this short film.
Do your students know about Charlie Chaplain and his contributions to our cultural history, particularly in cinema? Consider introducing him to your students this year in the context of digital storytelling. He has a lot to teach us! Learn more on the official Charlie Chaplain website, www.charliechaplin.com. Thanks to the Google Doodle team for sharing this inspiration!
