Nigeria’s animation industry might not be as prolific as Nollywood, but it is making slow progress. After the release of Lady Buckit and the Motley Monsters last year, Nigeria’s first feature-length to arrive cinemas, the genre is looking towards another animated feature titled Light Strands.
The animation is a short from Schucks Media and a trailer has been released that offers a glimpse of what we should expect. First, the animation looks good, a fluid picture that tells the story of Sade who has just graduated from university and thrust into a world of uncertainties.
As she is faced with life’s challenges, she begins to question herself and her place in the world. The ending of the trailer ends in a bit of a cliffhanger, but what did we expect? Light Strands is out May 1.
