We believe that there is an answer to the problems of climate change, overconsumption, sustainability, loss of biodiversity.
The answer, the one and only solution is the education of the next generation.
We have to teach our children how they can take care of and save our planet.
To translate the problems and tasks into their own language, to show them what to do, we are developing and creating an educational program with 3D animated short films: Hello Earth Program. It is a global program, and we will make it accessible to all schools in the world for free.
WHO ARE WE?
Someone from our colorful team loves to travel, someone loves to brew craft beer, someone loves chocolate, someone loves to run, someone loves to read, someone loves coffee. We are all unique and different. But we all have something in common. We want to make something good, we want and we work to make Earth a better place. We want to make Earth more liveable and sustainable. We want to create the FUTURE.
As an animation studio we have the skills, the special knowledge, and we also have the technical background in our hands, and our responsibility is to use it for a good purpose.
We believe that with a widespread collaboration we can change the future.
We believe in the power of humanity.
We believe in you!
OF HELLO EARTH PROGRAM
The program is designed for the youngest children in the schools, in grades 1 to 4 (from the age of 6 to 11). It will consist of 20 short animations (3-5 min each), 10 for 1-2nd graders and 10 for 3-4th graders.
It is often quite hard to translate complex topics and problems into the little kids' language without boring or scaring them.
We use innovative, modern technology to help our teachers transfer knowledge to their classroom practices. Even the most complex relationships are much easier to be presented in images and motion pictures.
Nowadays digital learning materials are more and more popular, but Hello Earth Program is not just one of them. It is the first global educational program about environmental protection, and it uses 3D animation. It is new, innovative and unique in itself, but also innovative in the way of thinking. Not only do we want to transfer knowledge, but we invite participants to think in a complex, systemic way. We will show the students that we cannot consider environmental protection as an independent phenomenon (or at least we shouldn't) because our environmental resources are inseparably connected to the systems of social, human and economic resources.
Our goal is to help kids understand the interconnections in the systems of Earth, to teach them how to think in systems.
We want to help them to become conscious adults who are responsible for their fellow human beings and their environment, who can act and who want to act.
proteting our waters, saving water
soil and land protection
protection of the forests
air, air pollution
using energy, saving energy
renewable and non-renewable energy sources
waste recovery, selective waste collection
overconsumption, conscious consumption
Each episode takes place in a new location, with new characters each time. The only two constant characters are the narrator and the little Robot. The kids will get to know the topic or the problems through the questions and stories of the narrator. And as he talks, our little Robot will show them everything in practice.
The kids can easily identify with the lovable, friendly characters, so they will be more likely to take action.
Understanding the relationships, which is much easier through animation, is essential for children to gather useable knowledge.
Play-based learning material is also more easily captured by students.
With our lovable characters and playful stories we are able to motivate children to explore and love nature.
The program will be available and free for every school (and also for homeschoolers, of course). With a widespread collaboration, and with your help, we can deliver it to hundreds of millions of kids in the world.
WHERE ARE WE NOW?
WE WILL SHOW YOU!
The production process of the series is quite complex, but we will show you where are we at the moment, what we have done so far, so you can track it anytime.
The main steps are the following:
character and environment design
3D modeling (characters, environment, and assets)
