AWESOME BEETLE'S COLORS, 3min, Latvia, Animation/Musical
Directed by Indra Sproge
"Awesome Beetle's Colors" is a 2:57 minutes long, fun and educative plasticine animation. The story goes : Awesome Beetles Color Dirty Elephant. Five Gorgeous Hippopotamuses Inspire the Jaguar. Kangaroos Like Marmelade. Naughty Octopusses Photograph the Queen. The Royal Spider Teaches an Unhappy Vampire. Wariors X-ray a Yellow Zebra. A nearly impossible story, supported by a catchy melody, guides us through the ABCs. There are many letters in the Alphabet and in the process of learning they are usually linked to nouns. We have created a link between all the letters of the Alphabet using nouns, adjectives and verbs. But most importantly - we also offer visual, audial and kinesthetic associations that help children in the process of learning.
Children's brains will make the necessary connections on their own and complicated things will be learned easily and effortlessly. In Latvia all kids have learned the alphabet by the Latvian counterpart of "Awesome Beetle's Colors", written by the artist Indra Sproge who is the director of this new animation. Now we have created this project in English so that children all over the world can learn Alphabet with great fun and ease!
For me the most important is - to ensure meaningful output of my creative process. I am artist. And I become writer so that my characters would know what to do. In order to teach zebras and beetles to move and act I become a director and animator.
My aim is to create not just decorative objects but also something useful and applicable in real life. I need an added value to my artistic expression. My intrinsic qualities.
My book "Million" helps a child to learn reading unwittingly. A child learns all the multiplication table from my book (with 55 animations added) "Teach me, Rhinobear!". And all the kids in Latvia knows Latvian alphabet, thanks animation with catchy melody "Joka p?c Alfab?ts".
My artist's approach is based on associations. In order to bring my ideas to life and to ensure that the associations would be as diverse as possible I employ different techniques and materials.
I devote my work to children's education. I am happy to turn rather boring process of learning into the most exciting adventure for the kids not only in Latvia but all over the world.
My new project "Awesome Beetles Colors" goes through the English Alphabet with great fun and excitement, using visual, audial and kinesthetic associations.
