Aisha Al-Jaidah / Web Series / Qatar / 4 min / Original Language: Arabic / Interests: Animation, Music, Children, Tradition


English language children’s songs are everywhere these days, and our kids know them by heart, singing them on every occasion. Everyone knows “Baby Shark” and “Five Little Monkeys”. They went viral online with their animated colourful style. Qatar’s traditional children’s songs are sadly fading away by time, and that’s where our project comes in—to keep these songs in hearts and minds, with new beats and colourful animations to appeal to the kids of today.

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 show audiences the creativity and inspiration Qatar has to offer.
