Welcome to our blog page! Our story is about a little toy tank who wants to paint a picture but is opposed by a strict and unbending police car.

We are a group of six students from the One Academy Of Design Communication:

Our mentor for this project is Mike L. Murphy who has worked on many projects prior to becoming our mentor.
The reason we're making this film is because we wanted to make it a part of our portfolio. We are able to foresee a whole lot of fun throughout the process and we are excited to be a part of the film making. We hope that the final outcome will be a good animation that will excite and entertain any audience.

We hope that you will support us along the way.
