The City of Richmond & A Video to Combat Knotweed

The City of Richmond is identifying and eliminating knotweed on city property, but they need landowners to join the fight on private property.

UpperStory Films created an animationto explain the dangers of knotweed, how to identify it, and what to do (and not do!) if it’s found. We collaborated on the script, introduced the idea of the dog protagonist, created a storyboard and then illustrated and animated to that storyboard, with regular check-ins. The finished video is just one in a series on invasive species – stay tuned for more!
