This short stop-motion animation addresses the subject of consent at a young age (8-14) through visualising children’s own accounts in a playful, non-threatening way.

The result is an edited, but unscripted film which intends to open up a natural and honest dialogue between children and adults.

The aim is to teach children that they are allowed to have their own physical boundaries and how to assert them.

Providing them with the vocabulary and confidence to vocalise their feelings, while shaping their personal autonomy, which serves as a useful skill set for later life.
