Spanish and Jordanian children participate together in Animacam with a cartoon short film

Eighteen children aged between six and twelve, of Spanish and Jordan origin, with the partnership of PDA (Pequeños Dibujos Animados-Small Cartoons) and the collaboration of the Cervantes Institute, has made an animated short film in its center of Amman (Jordan) in just five days.

The short film titled "My friend Amyad" has a duration of eight minutes and is based on the real life of two Bedouins living in the desert of Wadi Rum. The team of eighteen kids (nine Spanish and nine Jordanians), who made the drawings, the backgrounds and the conception of the idea of the work in a week, was coordinated by PDA (Pequeños Dibujos Animados-Small Cartoons), an association of audiovisual artists which made animated short film projects in collaboration with early childhood. With the use of an educational methodology, they are trying to teach and explain the process of creating animated audiovisual projects.

In addition to this work, the association has raised a tour of animations developed in different parts of Spain and around the world, including Madrid, Zlin (Czech Republic), Rome, Oran (Algeria). PDA team is participated by Mario Torrecillas (director), Tyto Alba (artist and animator), David Borrull (animation director) and Pablo Hernandez (visual arts expert), four animation professionals who have joined forces to develop this pioneering project in the introduction to the learning of audiovisual creation.

Animacam has selected this animation for competition in the Short Film category of the Official Selection, and with this job, the Festival already have in this newly released 3rd edition, 70 movies from 27 countries, four months before the voting time. This is a clear example of how Limaia Produccións (production company, organizer of, based in a little village of Spain called Sandiás) wants to be a meeting point between cartoon creators and web users from around the world, such as it is the Way of Saint James for the humanity.
