Tapocketa Animation showcase screen in the big window of McMullens brewery throughout April!
Very excited to announce that Tapocketa will be at the brand new, action-packed Wild Child Festival this coming August. There's so much to see and do but we hope you will take a little time out from all the numerous other activities to come and see us perform our animated children's tale, Galdo's Gift, wearing the illustrations (!), then have your photo taken as an adventuring hero, see some of our animations and learn how we create them plus so much more.
The festival is set over three days in the glorious surroundings of gorgeously green Dulwich in London and we are there every day!
Tickets are sure to disappear fast so to get your tickets early (and benefit from early bird savings) go to The Wild Child Fest site
As it is early days for this event, check back nearer the time for more specific details regarding our appearance at this festival. :-)

Eleanor and Trevor will be reading and acting out the story of Galdo's Gift with masks and props based on their illustrations at the Discover Children's Story Centre on the 27th Oct 2017. Come along and enjoy the show and become a hero for the day!
A fun, frivolous and inventive performance of the innovative debut kid's book, Galdo's Gift, by Eleanor Long and Trevor Young. Fresh from their fledgling animation studio, Tapocketa.
Using scaled up images from their book illustrations for masks and props (and lots of Velcro), Eleanor and Trevor will transport you to Galdovia and the bizarre antics of four heroes sent by a noble frog king to bring back a rare gift for a very special visitor.... you!
This advanced preview is a sneak glimpse of iBook due for release in early 2018.

See you there!!!
It is our pleasure to be presenting Galdo's Gift to the children at Commonswood Primary School as part of their book week.
This gives us a chance to gauge the reaction of the children to the story and we will be giving the teachers a handout to give to the children with a few basic questions regarding their thoughts on the book and a chance to write a story from their own imagination. A link to the PDF of this handout (a single double sided page) is here.
Mainly we all want the children to have a lot of fun and be inspired to create their own characters and worlds.
Further Details: This is an unpaid event and no money is collected from the school or the children. The story is a tale of four hapless heroes and the performance is suitable for children of all ages.
