Inspired: Children’s Entertainment – Tinga Tinga Tales

Tinga-Tinga-Tales-Group-Image-Tiger Aspect

Tinga Tinga Tales is inspired by traditional animal stories from Africa. The aesthetic is inspired by the Tingatinga artwork of Tanzania and I really like how they've interpreted it for the animation medium. 

The show is produced by Tiger Aspect Productions in association with Homeboyz Entertainment in Kenya and the first animation studio in Nairobi trained over 50 Kenyans in design, animation, editing and sound engineering. 

A Safaricom-sponsored mobile cinema takes the show to many remote areas in Kenya and fun curriculum-based books, featuring the Tinga Tinga Tales characters, are in development for children across the continent.
