Tales for Toys

 

 

Shani and Rod have set themselves this delightful challenge in building and developing a pilot episode of “Tales for Toys”. The basic idea behind “Tales for Toys” was to find away of effectually combining a sophisticated level of puppet engineering with 2d animated stories.This idea appealed to us because it would be a cost effective approach to producing an entertaining series for young children.

Sammy-jo is the puppet who, at night, tells imaginative stories to her teddy bear and dolly. The stories unfold in 2d animation where Sammy, her teddy and dolly are actively involved.

This project is still in development and it is going to be an ongoing process of change and discovering new ways of doing things.
