    uniE621 Little Wings
    ‘Little Wings’ is a new 12 minute per episode inspiring 2D classic animation, for the ages of 0-5 years old, to help them understand the importance of self - belief. The characters in Little Wings are boats that fly through the sky collecting the stars that light the pathways to our dreams. The themes explored include confidence building and discovering how working together can help to achieve our goals. When Anthony came to us with this project his drawings were the first thing that really drew us to it so when it came to putting the animation together we knew that a digital rendition of the boats just wasn't going to cut it. This lead us to taking all the artists drawings and talking Anthony though making extra assets and backgrounds we would need to make a full story. It was well worth the effort I think! https://www.twine.net/signinWW
