Silver Ant animation studios and Al Jazeera Childrens Channel (JCC) launched the co-produced animated feature film SEEFOOD at MIPTV 2011 in France.
SEEFOOD is a major leap for JCC in terms of content and took two years of production. 35 animators worked on the project.
SEEFOOD is expected to be released later this summer in theatres followed by DVD in English, Arabic and other languages.
The film follows the adventures of a bamboo shark named Pup, and when human poachers steal egg sacks from his reef, he makes it his mission to save his brothers and sisters no matter how impossible the task may seem.
His determination to make right what is wrong takes him above water into Man’s world – a landscape fraught with beauty and danger – an exciting destination the young shark could never ever have imagined. Afraid for Pup’s safety, Julius the big blue shark, embarks on his own quest to bring home his best pal.
The director of the film Goh AunHoe stated that it was the companys first animated movie.
The journey with SEEFOOD was exciting yet rough given the challenges we faced on several fronts that are known to our industry. Nevertheless, we have learnt a great deal during these last two years, and we hope this movie will touch the heart of the audience around the world as it did for me, my partner and all our team members.
SEEFOOD highlights different aspects of maritime life through a storyline that raises awareness on the intrusion of mankind into the ecological balance under the sea surface.
JCCs executive general manager Mahmoud Bouneb stated: It is vital for all families to see SEEFOOD as it raises a red flag on the damages occurring in the marine world where mankinds ill treatment of this precious environment and its inhabitants has already resulted in some extinction. We wanted the world to SEE, so we came up with the title SEEFOOD.
JCC and its partner Silver Ant will be working hand in hand to promote SEEFOOD on an international scale alongside our appointed global distributors. Bouneb added.
