We asked Bergeron about the ins and outs of making such a time-intensive and captivating film:
The Creators Project: Can you briefly outline the plot in your own words?
Ray McCarthy Bergeron: Through the perspective of a boy, you witness a personal story that recalls 9 very specific instances of my life. These are memories that have repeatedly haunted me throughout my youth and adulthood. The memories regularly reflected times of bliss mixed with sullen, miserable moments. Ultimately the film is about cycles; a story about growing up, religion and relationships.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
