Inspired by the 1970s 'Schoolhouse Rock' series, this video presents the use of oil as a source of energy. It is the ninth in a series of ten animated 'music videos' produced by the Wiess Energy Hall at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, each in a different musical and visual style, featuring the science and technology of energy.
The visuals were produced by PBE Exhibit Design and Consulting and animated by Paper Brain Productions in four styles of animation- hand-drawn, digital motion graphics, paper stop-motion, and claymation.
Visit the Houston Museum of Natural Science the fall of 2017 to experience the newly revamped Wiess Energy Hall, and jam out to the animated energy songs while you’re there!
