A programme of shorts for younger viewers, featuring whale-birds, walking acorns and naughty clouds.
Our first programme of animated shorts is particularly suitable for young ones, and like the Bugs and Beasts programme we showed at Flatpack no.3 there are all kinds of creatures to be found here.
The Whale Bird (dir: Sophie Roze) is a strange beast with wings which snoozes at the bottom of the ocean, and Whistleless (dir: Siri Melchior, pictured) follows a little orange bird across the town as it tries to find its voice. We’ve got a lovely Latvian cartoon called Acorn (dir: Dace Rozlapa) about making your way in the big wide world, and there’s also a chance to find out what happens When A Hen Eats A Bee (dir: Tim Frost). Fluffy McCloud (dir: Conor Finnegan) shows mother nature getting mischievous, and Electric Car (dir: Tiny Inventions) is a song by They Might Be Giants about, um, electric cars.
