Educational animated series for children 
A two-part animated series exploring the curiosity of children.
Produced for a local science festival in response to an open brief. In this project, I learned to animate and write children's poetry from scratch in just under two months.
Winner of the 2021 Nottingham Young Creative Awards

Meet the client:
Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity (Fosac)

Fosac is a family science festival that runs for two weeks every February.

For their first online festival, Fosac put out an open call for creative practitioners. They wanted to produce a piece of work based around the themes of the festival: STEM learning, community collaboration and most importantly, curiosity.
I was fortunate enough to have my proposal selected amongst the other applicants:
Asking kids aged 4-9 to answer life's biggest questions.
Primary school children were asked to think about how our lives would differ if we changed certain things. Shortly after coming up with a few "What if?" questions, the ideas and possibilities of the new worlds they had just created were all too intriguing to forget.

Before long, answers and theories were yelled across the room.
The answers were beyond my expectations and adapted as a Dr Seuss style poem to add a narrative element to their solutions.
Episode 2 - What if we went to school on the moon?

My client's first video was very well received and played on NottsTV (A local TV channel) during the festival. I returned to the same primary school to ask the children more questions about life.
I was eager to stick to the same formula that worked for the first video, but I wanted to evolve the series. To do this, I used the same typeface and bold typographic frames but prioritised creating more interesting shot compositions.
This project is important to me as I believe we must all make a habit of curiosity. It is only through constant questioning that we can form positive social change and innovate in the world
 around us.
