This year on Children's Day, the leading kids channel Cartoon Network brings a special treat for its young viewers by showcasing six animation short films based on stories submitted by kids at the annual Children'z Animation Workshop organised by Toonz Animation Studios. As a tribute to the creativity and imagination of children, Cartoon Network will telecast these winning animated shorts all day on 14 November 2002.
As part of the workshop, the winners got the opportunity to work with the Toonz Animation animators in fine-tuning their story-boards, scripts, characters, as well as choosing the style of animation, background of their own films and colouring the models for the final inking and painting.
The six films took over six months to complete and have been produced using different animation styles viz. Flash Animation, Traditional 2-D Animation, and Claymation. Interestingly, some of the kids have even done the voicing for their films. The children also underwent a basic training course in animation as well as attended lectures.
