Awesome Beetle`s Colors

A Film by Indra Sproge

Synopsis

Awesome Beetle’s Colors” is a 3.13 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 Octopuses 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.
