"Sule and the Case of the Tiny Sparks" (Animation)
Directed by: Shawnee & Shawnelle Gibbs (The Gibbs Sisters) | Written by Rene Rawls
Please enjoy our animated film, Sule and the Case of the Tiny Sparks, a spirited celebration of Nelson Mandela’s life and humanitarian message.
Sule’s the recipient of the Best Animation award at the Montreal International Black film festival, and an official selection of the Chicago International Children’s festival, The Langston Hughes Film Festival, The New York International Children’s Film Festival and the Pan African Children’s Film Festival. It will screen this weekend at the 40th annual Newark Black Film Festival.
It was a real pleasure for Shawnelle and I to direct this inspiring tale. We hope that you enjoy it!
Above are a few production stills from Sule and a shot of us working in the studio on our next project, The Invention of E.J. Whitaker, a steampunk comic with art from the talented Sule storyboard artist, Mark Hernandez.
