AWESOME BEETLE'S COLORS 

3' LATVIA Riga    

Directora Indra Sproge        

Sinopsi “Awesome Beetle’s Colors” is a 2:57 minutes long, fun and educative plasticine animation. The story goes : Awesome Beetles Color Dirty Elephant. Five Gorgeous Hippopotamuses Inspire the Jaguar. Kangaroos Like Marmelade. Naughty Octopusses Photograph the Queen. The Royal Spider Teaches an Unhappy Vampire. Wariors X-ray a Yellow Zebra. A nearly impossible story, supported by a catchy melody, guides us through the ABCs. There are many letters in the Alphabet and in the process of learning they are usually linked to nouns. We have created a link between all the letters of the Alphabet using nouns, adjectives and verbs. But most importantly - we also offer visual, audial and kinesthetic associations that help children in the process of learning. Children’s brains will make the necessary connections on their own and complicated things will be learned easily and effortlessly. In Latvia all kids have learned the alphabet by the Latvian counterpart of “Awesome Beetle’s Colors”, written by the artist Indra Sproge who is the director of this new animation. Now we have created this project in English so that children all over the world can learn Alphabet with great fun and ease!
