SAGO – Dry Toilet
Stop Motion Animation
In Papua New Guinea access to a safe toilet is unfortunately not the human right that it should be. There is a staggering 65% of people that do not have access to a safe toilet and 13% of the population that don’t have access to a toilet at all.
We joined forces with Sago Network to raise awareness around this issue and to help tell their story. We were faced with the challenge of making it relevant to an Australian audience as we knew the more relevant we could make it the more much needed cash that would mean for the project.
Sago Network’s plan is to provide Papua New Guinea with waterless latrine systems that are long lasting, lightweight and easy to transport as well as being eco-friendly. The system dries out the waste to a sand like substance that is safe to dispose of.
We came at the project with a very hands on approach. Using stop-motion papercraft to tell the story. Cutting out and constructing each individual element from paper by hand. Then using a top down camera rig to capture each frame animated by hand. The stop motion process is incredibly tactile and this comes across in the subtle imperfections of the final outcome.
