About

#BetterChristianContent

 Animal Tales and Bible Stories (ATBS) is a new Christian kids animation series for ages 4 and up. It is created by the MiME Design Studio, a small group of Seventh-day Adventiest Christians that are dedicated to improving the quality of Christian entertainment both in audio/video presentation and biblical accuracy.

"If we want the new and upcoming generations to trade in their secular entertainment, than we need to provide #BetterChristianContent that rivals what already exists online, on tv and in the theatres.
- Toussaint H. E. Brown

ATBS will tell the stories that are often overlooked (such as Elijah's Mt.Carmel Victory) as well as the feel-good-favourites (such as Noah's Ark). However the most important distinguishing characteristic in the ATBS series will be its acknowledgement of subject matter such as...

  • the seventh-day sabbath
  • sharing your faith with non believers
  • the 10 commandments
  • the great controversy and more

...in a kid friendly and educational way.

The Stories

Each episode begins in 3D. The characters involved in the episode will assemble in the tree house where they will reveal the episode's theme based on a given circumstance. Once the theme has been revealed to the viewers one of the characters will choose a book from the book shelf that relates to the theme of the episode. 

When the story begins the illustrations of the book come to life in an animated pop-up book style.

With sufficient funding ATBS will begin the series with the story of Elijah and the story of Zacchaeus. However, the following stories are also in development... 

  • The Story of Creation
  • The Cruise Ship Noah's Ark

The Main Characters

We are proud of our ATBS cast and are looking forward to meeting the voices that will bring them to life. The character models will inevtibaly go through some changes but for the most part will remain the same. Let us know what you think of our cast on our facebook page

Franky (porcupine) and Tobi (Bear)

Risks and challenges

We pride ourselves in being well versed in the different departments involved in bringing an animated film project from conception to distribution. however based on our past experiences, there is always the risk of delays due to challenges with equipment performance and finding the right voices. Fortunately, the Adventist community has shown its willingness to support in many different ways, and so far there is a growing excitement for this project. We predict finding the right voices will not be much of a challenge.

As for the equipment. If we are able to reach our Kickstarter goal we will have the capitol neccessary to purchase the upgrades needed in order to ensure timely completions.
