Synopsis

English kids' songs these days are everywhere, and our kids know them by heart and sing them on every occasion. Everyone knows “Baby Shark” and “Five Little Monkeys”. They went viral online with their animated, colourful style. The traditional kid’s songs in Qatar are fading away by time, and that’s where our project comes in to keep these songs in mind, with new beats that appeal to modern kids and using the same colourful animation they adore and love.

About the Director

Aisha Al-Jaidah began her animation career professionally in 2010 at Al Jazeera children’s channel as a senior animation producer, animating the first animated children’s series created by a local in Qatar. With the scholarship awarded by the Supreme Education Council of Qatar, Aisha has pursued her dream to study animation and managed to graduate from Kingston University London, as the first Qatari citizen to hold a BA Hons in Illustration & Animation. This achievement has motivated Aisha to create and run her own animation company and hopes to showcase the creativity and inspiration Qatar has to offer.
