Stop-Motion Tribute to Steve Jobs Created by a 14-Year-Old and an iPad App


Here’s a bit of inspiration that should help start your Wednesday off on the right foot — whether you’re preparing to stuff your face tomorrow or today is just another hump day. It’s a short stop motion film that pays tribute to the late great Apple CEO Steve Jobs, and it was created by a 14-year-old with some time and the Foldify iPad app.

The filmmaker behind the project is 14-year-old Yash Banka, who has taken a real liking to using an app called Foldify. Foldify allows you to create printable 3D figurines using only an iPad, your standard printer and some folding ability.

So last May, as a tribute to Jobs, who is one of his heroes, Banka created a bunch of figurines of characters from animated shows and movies (not all, ironically, were from Pixar movies) and then set about creating this stop motion film depicting a snippet of Jobs’ famous Stanford commencement address.


It’s not the kind of uber artistic or crazy complicated stop motion film that we might be used to sharing, but there’s an honesty and a simplicity in this one that just caught our eye. Besides, it’s never a bad idea to start your day off with an inspirational message, and Jobs’ Stanford commencement address certainly qualifies.

So check out the video at the top, and if you like what you see, head over to Banka’s Facebook page to see more of his Foldify stop motion creations.
