About

"Never work with animals or children," is a catch phrase we hear all too often. Why? Is it because we perceive the little blighters as loose cannons - unpredictable, excitable, zany... manipulative?

What if I were to inform you that our Project Officer is eleven and that her "associates" are a bunch of animated, multicoloured chickens of her own devising? Would you close the tab or are you up for a challenge? Care to read on?

Amber is indeed eleven but has already published her own book The Beak in support of charity Little Wings, a free flight service for seriously ill children. By doing what children do best she persuaded a bunch of professionals - graphic designers, cinematographers, advertising executives (indeed a whole company!) to help promote and distribute it. Her main character C.C.Chickpea has her own website, Twitter and Facebook accounts, a YouTube clip, online newspaper The Piratical Press and of course a book review...

Now our feisty friend wants to make a rap video and Miss Chickpea - a fuzzy, aqua celebrity and philanthropist in her own right - demands equal billing! Impossible? We don't think so.

Amber knows how to work, and hard! She approached a number of potential sponsors and publishers before she found one willing to support her vision her way... With every rejection, we cried along with her. She knows about hurdles. She went three weeks without her trusty light box, tracing preliminary characters on paper taped to windows until it could be repaired. This is a child who won't give up - not on herself, not on behalf of the ill children whose plight she highlights.

Our diminutive Project Officer has raised money through her school, markets and a library seminar. Ultimately, she hopes "Chicken Rap" will lift the profile of Little Wings even further.

The rap video will be animated by the same company who have been loyal to her and her eclectic group of fuzzy friends from the outset!

Risks and challenges

Perhaps Amber will get laryngitis, her animation team may have issues with her aesthetics... Who knows? She'll deal with it, like she always does and deliver a project on time and of high quality, whatever it takes... Because when you love others as well as yourself, magic happens.
