Magic Carpet Studios are based in Lekki, Lagos and look to be a force on the African animation scene. My recent visit to Lagos included a visit to their studios where a met a great team of animation enthusiasts. Their animations range between 2D and 3D and include a range of styles. My favourite things about their animations are the layout and design, fantastic timing and laugh out loud comedy. I included a couple of my favourites below
The studio is also embarking upon its first feature length animation based on an adaptation of the book "The passport of Mallam Ilia" by the Nigerian literary legend, Cyprian Ekwensi.
The sneak peek we got of the teaser trailer has great design and action and looks intriguing so we should keep an eye out for this animation.
