The short animated films on this reel are the outcome of the second training and production workshop held from June 18th-July 22nd, 2005 in Durban, South Africa. During this workshop, 17 African artists with little or no previous experience in animation underwent a tailor-made intensive training.

Taught by professors from leading international animation schools, the trainees developed and animated their own original children's stories. The diversity in style and technique reflects their varying skills, ranging from illustrators to cartoonists and painters.
