With 40 days remaining until the Regional Transportation Referendum vote, MAVEN is continuing to educate voters across the region. The organization has partnered with COLLYDE and Green Tricycle Studios to produce a four-part series on Mr. “Stan Still”, a fictional Atlanta commuter helping metro Atlantans cope with our legendary traffic.
"Our hope is that our Gen X / Y peers will catch wind of this comedic series and help push the satire virally- not just for laughs in their inboxes, but more than anything, to spur the younger generation to be a part of critical decisions shaping our city's future”, said Tara Makarechi, a partner at COLLYDE and in-town Atlanta resident.
In the first video, Stan Still introduces commuters to chapter two of his guidebook, a fool-proof system for how to cut people off in traffic, “Be Brave with the Pre-Wave”. Videos two through four will be introduced on a weekly basis and continue the theme that traffic in metro Atlanta is at a standstill.
“It was a pleasure to work with Tara and Green Tricycle Studios. Over the past few months, MAVEN has been working hard to make the referendum as plain-speak as possible for the average person”, said Bob Voyles, chairman of MAVEN. “This video series is a great way to get the message out about the July 31 Regional Transportation Referendum and this possible solution to addressing our region’s traffic congestion.”
The videos will be featured on the YouTube account for MAVEN, TransformMetroATL.
