Project Main Details

Llandudno Short Animation 

My name is Michael and I'm an animator in London. This project is a short animation for children aged 7-12. It's a story about a boy in his home town of Llandudno in North Wales. It's created as an educational film but is fictional tale, subliminally teaching key parts from the Geography syllabus throughout the story. It's a small personal film which I hope to later get funding for to create further episodes, so I apologise if the budget seems low, but I'll be the first to contact you if it goes well.

I've been imagining something calm, composed and comforting in terms of tone. I would like to avoid anything that sounds patronising, as the target pupils will be of a competant level, but a warmth would be nice. I originally had in mind an avuncular tone, like a grandfather/mother telling a story. It's all narration and there are no character voices within the script. I really like "Lost and Found" the children's animation which is hopefully a potential steer (http://vimeo.com/97851054) and kind of similar in terms of content.

However if you think something else might work in terms of style, I'm more than happy to hear any creative thoughts. I've currently recorded a guide track myself which I'm animating to, so it would be incredibly helpful if you would be able to keep to a similar-ish type pace when it's recorded. I've attached an audio file of the first few lines of my poorly recorded guide track so you can get a feel for the type of pacing I'm hoping for.

If your voice-recording is crisp and clear and could be simply emailed/upload to me that would be perfect, I'm happy to chop it up and edit it at all if needed, and I'll be putting on sound effects and music etc.
I've attached some stills although it's still very much work in progress, I'm not really sure but they might be useful to help you picture the film a little.

Many thanks to anyone proposing their talents, I can't wait to hear your narration and bringing your unique input to the film.
I look forward to hearing what you have in mind!

Michael Davies.

People travel from all over Britain in the summer to visit this Welsh town. For everything to run smoothly in seaside towns like Llandudno, the tourist industry has to be carefully managed. This was a lesson that one boy, who told one lie, was about to find out."
