The Music of the Sheep

The Music of the Sheep from woody yocum on Vimeo.

Music shows are always the most fun and this is a unique one!
Christopher Smith's great vocal interpretations of the sheep make this a hilarious episode and the first rate character animation from Min Hu's great team at Carloon really bring it to life. I think this is a really original and effective show for teaching musical concepts to young viewers.

Sometimes in designing for an international audience, things fall into place all by themselves. Above, Pom Pom is holding cards that spell his name in Chinese characters. Pom Pom's name literally translates to 'Friend Friend' in Mandarin. It's perfect for him and such a natural fit.
we are deep into post production now and preparing all kinds of merch and licensing materials, but more on that soon.
