ALT Animation and TAUNT Studios have recently completed production of Mimi’s World, an exciting new mixed media series featuring an inspirational childminder on a mission to help kids to be confident, kind and inclusive and to take ownership of their emotions. The show was commissioned by Milkshake! and is currently airing every weekend morning at 9am.
The series was produced by Adastra Development with ALT Animation and TAUNT Studios providing all of the 2D and 3D animation, compositing and VFX. All of the filming took place in Belfast and the series was part funded by the BFI’s Young Audiences Content Fund and NI Screen.
The show features a group of young children and some enchanting, animated characters, who interact with one another whilst exploring emotional issues that kids everywhere will relate to. The stories are full of laughter, song, and a whole lot of heart, and in each episode a child learns how to deal with their feelings. Mimi does this through stories, creative activities, imaginative play and with a host of magical characters who help the kids to be the best that they can be. Mimi’s World is a place that builds confidence, engenders well-being and nurtures friendship and co-operation. It’s a place where horizons are broadened and where kids are encouraged to explore, process, and own their feelings in a safe, supportive, and creative environment.
