Mishkat Interactive Center for Atomic and Renewable Energy, a prominent science centre in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, is dedicated to educating and inspiring students to become energy innovators for a sustainable future. With the goal of transforming the nation’s attitude and understanding of energy consumption, they approached Fox & Co. Animation Studio with a creative challenge: produce a 15-20 minute 3D animated film about renewable energy for a better environment, targeting children aged 6-12.
The film needed to effectively communicate the importance of renewable energy sources and their role in addressing climate change. Fox & Co. was tasked with creating a visually engaging and informative animation that would captivate young audiences and promote a lasting impact.
A crucial aspect of the project was ensuring that the scientific content was accurate, and the Arabic language used was correct. Fox & Co. needed to take these factors into consideration while designing the animation, ultimately delivering an exceptional film that resonated with Mishkat’s core values and objectives.
In response to the client’s brief for a captivating and educational film about renewable energy, Fox & Co crafted an engaging narrative set in the unique world of Malapan, a floating island in the sky. The story centres around two young protagonists, Ali and Nura, who embark on an adventure to save their island from sinking due to depleting coal resources. Along the way, they discover the potential of wind, water, and solar power, and with the help of their community, manage to save Malapan and create a more sustainable and cleaner environment.
Fox & Co’s creative solution delivers an impactful and visually stunning animated film that not only entertains but also educates young viewers on the importance of renewable energy. By incorporating relatable characters and an inspiring storyline, Malapan encourages audiences to become the next generation of energy
