The Prize:

An example of what exactly we are offering in terms of the 3d Animated Video is “Panze”. Panze is a project we did  with Hey Hey Preacher,  a spoken word artist, poet and a contemporary hip hop artist. In 2020 Hey Hey Preacher composed a fantastic Piece called Panze, which talks about the effects of the Covid-19 Lockdown on the people of Zimbabwe.

We animated his piece, added music and scoring and the final piece is one of our Masterpieces!

You can find a link to Panze on the bottom of this page.
