The core concept of relativity is interesting in that it shatters the singularity in perspective that we have become accustomed to. Watch the video to learn more!

I hate to explain this joke but if you didn't get it yet, the bumper sticker is a joke about the Doppler Effect on light. ;)

If you drive too fast (at close to the speed of light) towards the pickup truck's bumper, the light waves of the sticker will get bunched up from your reference frame, therefore making it look blue for you. This is explained from 1:29 onward.



The process never formally started because I've been passively looking for topics since last year. Summer was the time I actually started building the script. After a lot of tentative topics and drafts, I finally managed to fit it into 3 minutes!

Then I had to shoot the video (~5 hours), edit the footage (~17 hours) and animate (~120 hours). I used Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017 for editing and Adobe After Effects CC 2017 for the animations and compositing. This thing definitely tested my patience.
