I’d like to show here the WIP on Bishop Animation’s first short film, “Paul and his Bananas”.
“Paul and His Bananas” is an educational short film geared toward young children who are just learning to count.
I’m a dad with two children of my own, a four year old and a one year old. If you are not a parent, you would not believe the junk that passes for educational or entertainment nowadays (I sound like I’m 80 years old right there).
I decided to make a short film for kids that looks as good as possible, is entertaining, and tries not to talk down to kids.
I’m hoping to make a film that is in the same vein as the Sesame Street animated segements from the 70’s and early 80’s… things like the “Ladybug Picnic” or “The Alligator Prince” if any of you remember those.
Music will play a big part in the piece. We’ve got “Invader Zim” composer Kevin Manthei on board to score the short film.
We hope to have the film ready for a July premiere.
Several CGTalk regulars are helping out on this, and I hope to post regularly on our progress.
Have a look and let us know what you think.
