The Secret Princess - A new genre of animation

£4,557

315

136,800 frames in total, three and a half years of work, Animators and modellers spending several sleepless nights in the studio. A dedicated cast and crew. 

All in an effort to create a new genre of animation, a feature animated film. The first of its kind telling an African story by an African writer, director and producer with an international cast and crew from the US, Canada, UK, Australia, Russia, India and Africa. A type of computer 3d animation style so rare especially in Africa due to the cost, time and technology involved.

The Secret Princess does not has the pace of a superhero story, neither is it a straight up cartoon. It is like watching a storybook in a magical space -- When asked to describe this genre, as the director i call this genre storybook toons.

The Story

A prince falls in love with a mysterious girl unaware she is a princess that was switched for him at birth. A king wary of his crown and seeking for a male child to heir the throne led to a secret baby switch by the queen and a farmer's wife. Sade the secret princess and her adopted mother are accused of being witches after the farmer disappears; they escape into the Jungle as the animals help them.

Risks and challenges

I hope everything goes according to plan without any problems.
After a canceled Kickstarter pre-production campaign due to low number of backers(I guess i was asking for much with little to show), I went ahead and put together a team of animators to do the bulk of the production work.
Hence, delivering all the digital contents will be a smooth process.
Problems could arise with the inventory and physical content delivery. If any issue arises such as delay in manufacturing of T-shirts, DVDs and Dolls, i will do my best to keep all backers informed of any unforeseen problems and resolutions.
