These two music video clips about the colours orange and red were made using stop motion animation by 11-year-old Alba, Antonia, Charlotte, Malte, Nik and Suraya with help from Hanno and Zaki during a workshop for the zapf TrickTruck of the KUKI 10th. International Short Film Festival for Children and Youth Berlin 2017.
The children were totally responsible for the look and feel of the clips. They met once a week during most of the two-month workshop. More often towards the ...deadline, which was the prize-giving ceremony of the festival on November 26. They started with analysing the texts, developing and sketching characters and storyline and then testing out the motions. Zaki was responsible for rummaging around and sourcing for fabrics and haberdashery, cutting and glueing for the characters and the scenes.
The songs, which are part of a series about colours and patterns, were written by Josepha Conrad for mata-mata medien UG. It was for the children's media project "play-play", which received support from the medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg.
Thank you Suraya, Nik, Malte, Lola, Charlotte, Antonio and Alba for the lovely images. This one is from LIKE A WARRIOR, LIKE A SAMURAI. We used one from ORANGE for our personal pages.

Here is "Moments with Emily", one of the many audiovisual media produced for maiin-maiin clothes and accessories for children.
The "Moments" series are illustra...ted stories that capture a moment in the lives of the girls Emily and Mathilda, Minka the Cat and Fips the Dog, created by Berlin-based Karen Runge. These lovely characters are found on the button-on pockets. We love Karen's unique, simple and strong style.
Michal Krajczok composed the music accompanying the drawings and the voice of Katy Kavanaugh. Thank you Michal and Katy for giving the pictures the wonderful sound. Katy's "Meow" is the best!
