Animating StoryCorps

Founded in 2003, StoryCorps has recorded 30,000 interviews across the United States of (un)common American stories. It does this by letting people reserve time in their sound booths in New York and San Francisco, and in an additional roving sound booth that reaches other destinations across the country.

To date, some 60,000 people have participated with “best of” stories airing on NPR’s Morning Edition, and all preserved at the Library of Congress’ American Folklife Center. Consider it an original radio crowdsourcing project.

Lately, some of the interviews have been animated. The work is done by the Rauch Brothers Animation. You can follow them on Tumblr

This great animation really adds another dimension. Maybe I should bring my grandparents here and have my dad translate for them.
