Afro Centric Preschool Children Cartoon Series: Production Starts in Nigeria
Bino & Fino is an animation series driven by education, entertainment and the Nigerian cultural mix. It is a brand new cartoon series being produced by Nigerian creative studio EVCL.
‘This is something I feel is needed out there’ says EVCL head, Adamu Waziri. ‘Children cartoons and programming are incredibly influential. Most of us remember series such as Tom and Jerry, Transformers, Sesame Street, Bugs Bunny, Teletubbies etc. Every generation that had access to television will remember will remember at least one prominent series fondly. Some of those programmes educated us and even inspired us to do what we do today.’
‘To have a series where the principal characters are African in origin is quite important in today’s global village where children are receiving media programmes from a myriad of sources. At an early stage, children of black African origin either on the continent or in Diaspora will start to see programming that puts them on an equal footing as children from all over the world. Meanwhile, children from other parts of the world will start to see African children as children that are the same as they are. It’ll be a drop in the ocean but you have to start somewhere’
Here is a teaser look at the characters developed by EVCL. http://www.youtube.com/
The production of the Bino and Fino will be as open as possible, experimental and will involve the public in various stages. ‘We want as much feedback from the public as possible as that will help us produce a better product for their families.’ Get the latest and contribute your feedback to the development of Bino and Fino on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/#!/
