Inspired by my two year old niece who having seen a goat herder in Spain kept chanting 'lots and lots and lots of goats!'. The story follows a day in the life of a goat herder and his flock of goats as they travel up and down the mountains of Spain. Andy Cabic, lead singer of the band Vetiver vetiverse.com/ kindly gave me permission to use his track for the film which was fantastic.
There is no dialogue. The story is told using sound and movement.
I created this film during a break between animating on 'Peppa Pig' and 'Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom'.
I would love to make this in to an app for the iPAD as an interactive animated storybook for kids.
