We are thrilled to finally share our debut project with the world. The 3D animated short film is titled “THE SATCHEL” and is an adaptation based on the Yoruba mythology of earth’s creation. Taeps Animation Studios has taken this popular folktale and adapted it in a unique and modern way that focuses on creating nostalgia of great African Yoruba Mythology presented in beautiful 3D animation.
This adapted story centres on earth’s creation between the divine Kings, Oduduwa and Obatala, as they battle to create this kingdom using a powerful Satchel. The sibling rivalry between these superpowers are immense and the stakes are higher with Obatala’s handwork about to be ripped from him by his scheming brother, Oduduwa.
The tale leaves you with a choice says the Writer, Jimi Oremule – #TeamObatala or #TeamOduduwa?
“At Taeps, the goal is to tell the best of African folktales in the most imaginative, fun, educative and relatable way and bring to screen, these beautiful stories that have been long told and re-told by our ancestors, says the Co-Founder, Adeoyin Okuboyejo. We are very pleased to release The Satchel, as the first of the lot, of the stories under our belt. The story re-tells the rivalry between the powerful deities, Oduduwa and Obatala. There are so many elements to the story from the beautiful scenes, to the interaction between the characters, the music and it’s filled with something for everyone.”
“We know this is the start of something and look to tell even more great and influential African stories to a worldwide audience using the medium of 3D and 2D Animation.”
“Storytelling is a magnificent art form and where best to tell it than at Taeps Animation Studios!”
