Protest Animation

Protest is seasoned in local vernacular and tells the story of protesting through the eyes of the unsuspecting trini. It reflects the cultural nuances of Trinidad and Tobago through the creative expressions of the spoken word. The call and response element of the storyteller to his audience is invoked by the line at the end of each situation “Protest, dat is Protest”. The marriage of the animation and the spoken word engages a wider viewership as they are immersed into the experiences of the protagonist. The story includes characters created by storyteller Taharqa Obika and to be illustrated by Seon Thompson. These Characters are central to everyday life for many a Trinbagonian. I have been working on this for quite some time now and finally I am getting a bit more time to get it done. I would be putting up images of my process as I go along so stay tuned.
