On PBS shows, there is always 90 seconds to fill between episodes because they don’t have any commercials. We came up with an idea to put folktales and animated songs animated by animators from the local regions they are from. That idea got a little stepped on my Canadian Tax credit issues, but we still ended up with an amazing group of Canadian animators, and we are so lucky to have them.
This showcased Interstitial played when we did episodes in Juneau Alaska. The song is by the amazing Peter Hannan, and well, here is the rest of the info.
DIRECTION: Hector Herrera, Pazit Cahlon
DESIGN: Hector Herrera
PRODUCTION: Pazit Cahlon
SONGWRITER: Peter Hannam
SONG PERFORMED BY: Jaiden Canatelli
The rest of the amazing animators we have working on these shorts are
NOAM SUSSMAN, ALI KELLNER, JAMES BRAITHWAITE, STOP MOTION DEPARTMENT (PHILIP EDDOLLS, EVAN DeRUSHDIE, ANNICK), TERRY IBELE, ANDREW FOERSTER, ANDREW KOLB, and DYLAN GLYNN.
Thank you so much to all of them. I will be showcasing more of the amazing shorts.
