Nigeria's first feature length Computer Animated Film - LIFESPAN - has hit the radar. With a youtube channel of their own, promoting the film, and collaborative events hosted on Facebook, the team have mobilised creatives in the field with their "Create a LIFESPAN character" competition, with open submissions from online facebook members.
Stanlee Ohikhuare and Mighty Jot Animation Studios - have put together a visually exciting film of high production value. In production since 2006, due to be released in 2009, this film is another piece of evidence that animation on the African continent is rapidly gaining popularity, with the artistic and technical skills to match.
You can view to promo, and concept development work on the LifeSpan2009 youtube channel.
