The Sound Collector

Eagle Vs Bat, Enanimation, Mackinnon & Saunders, ITV, RAI, Serious Kids


- Animation: Children

Explore the sights and sounds of the world you love, through the eyes and ears of a little Sound Collector! Narrated by Keira Knightley, the series is a stunning combination of beautiful live action, and world class stop frame by the multiple award-winning Mackinnon & Saunders. The tactility of the stop frame is the perfect match for the show’s focus on the tiny nuances of sound – and reminds us to stop and take a moment to indulge in everything that we see and hear around us. The Sound Collector spends his days discovering and using new sounds that he finds on his adventures: the blooping and popping of sea anemones, the hissing of the tide drawing back along a pebble beach or even the snores and snuffles of his best friend and pet, Mole. Created by Erica & Tom Angell of Eagle Vs Bat, The Sound Collector is a beautiful, heart-warming series that is fast gaining a fanbase around the world. The series is directed by Chris Tichborne and head written by multiple BAFTA winning Dave Ingham.
