Entertain your children !
Music is a fantastic and fun way to memorize things and these original catchy tunes will help your child to learn new things by listening to the words and linking them to the moving pictures on the screen.

What's the plan?

Everything will be uploaded on Youtube and Vimeo for free streaming.
In order to do that, I've selected some really fantastic rewards wichyou can find on your right! If you like what you have seen in the title sequence, and if your children have asked you to please, please play that again, then help me reach the goal and start making Labuntina Sing-along! Every penny counts.

How did Labuntina start?
I’m a film maker and song writer, but most importantly I’m a mother. During my daughter’s first year, I had to find ways to entertain her and help her (and me) to get through the daily routine. So I came up with original songs about taking a bath, eating a meal, going to sleep, but also the classic ABC, numbers, colours, etc. Being a film maker, the idea of turning these songs into animated music videos, came straight away!
Why is it good for non-native English speaking children too?
Many parents would like their children to become familiar with the English language from a young age and Labuntina is an excellent way to do this!
This is not an English course for children, but a fun entertainment tool that will definitely stimulate your children to learn something. I moved to the UK in my early twenties, and I remember perfectly the struggle of learning a foreign language at that stage. I know how important it is and I wanted to help. I wish I had a tool like this, when I was a child!

Risks and challenges
The first step to getting the video production started is getting all the recordings done. This may take longer than usual as we will need to work around the childrens' availability in terms of school, holidays, family, etc.
Production and rewards will also have to created alongside my current job to begin with, but I am sure that within 10 months of the end of the campaign I will have all the time I need to get all the songs recorded and make the first music video.
I am lucky enough to know amazingly talented animators who will give me a hand if I need it so I am very confident we'll make it on time! If stretch goals apply (which would be great!), the schedule will be stretched through 2017.
