A typical Tribe Soc meet-up

July 25, 2008 at 11:14 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

Tribe Soc will meet once weekly at the Guild Common room (which is upstairs from Guild reception, just round the corner from Deb Hall, and will be sign posted for the first few meet-ups).

In each meeting members will be able to

  • discuss ideas and make plans for fundraisers, political campaigns, and much more
  • keep informed on international tribal developments
  • Write storyboards and animate Tribe Soc’s own series, ‘Stories from an Untouched World’

The purpose of ‘Stories from an Untouched World’ will be to increase public awarenessand fondness of indigenous tribal people.  They will be short plasticine animations based on a few characters who will come to be known and loved by all who follow the series.  These characters will just so happen to be tribal people, thus more of the public will accidentally care about these tribal people.  The front of the episodes will be gentle humour like ‘Simpsons’, or ‘Friends’, or any other easy to watch comedy.

They will be published first on You-tube, Atom tv, and any other suitable Internet sites, and then, when we get good, I am hoping the BBC might let us publish a series on TV.

Animating the series should also give us something fun to do in our meetings, as well as something tangible to take away from them.
