Take the whole family to save Christmas at Z-Arts in Manchester! Made by Slung Low, the show runs until Christmas Eve, and tickets are going fast. Shows are at 11am, 2pm, 4pm and 7pm most days from this Saturday (20th Dec) onwards.
From the Z-Arts site:
Things are very, very wrong – Christmas trees are behaving strangely, there are rumours of grumpy fairies and elves throwing baubles at shoppers! Someone is out to spoil the fun, the clock is ticking and no one can stop it but you – you have 59 Minutes to Save Christmas!
An interactive headphone journey around Z-arts for intrepid adventurers and brave parents (who might be useful to reach the high stuff).
***SPOILERS!*** Some of the themes from the show are here:
I worked on this brilliant short animation for Kilogramme Animation back in October. It played on CITV throughout November. So much fun! And, *spoiler warning* the mole gets the upper hand at the end so of course I loved it.
From the ComposerWorks site:
The BAFTA-winning series, run annually by CITV in which children aged 5-12 are asked to write a one-page story and also draw an accompanying storyboard…
Entries are judged by professional animators and children who have won the competition in the past. Winning stories are turned into short animations which are then broadcast on CITV in October. The competition launched in 2010, and has been nominated for four Children’s BAFTA Awards, winning twice (in 2012 and 2013).
