Yes We Can by Rico Swavey and Tobi

Theme: Togetherness

In togetherness, ability and power of connectivity, we are able to achieve desired dreams.

This is a short film of cartoon characters where we express the morals and benefits of togetherness and power of connectivity with the use of non-living elements.

With the help of Nokia & Bothie, we will show how a nation of different tribes can come together to achieve a goal that will change their way of life and ensure their collective survival forever.

This quest was a result of the drive and passion of a young tribe member to end the suffering of his people. He engaged and went in search for solutions to end the nutritional deficiency of his people. On his quest he came across several other tribes and the only unique thing about all tribes he encountered was the deficiency they all suffered although they were all rich in different distinct nutrients.

He was able to convince the other tribe members he encountered to come together so they could all achieve the goal of ending their deficiencies now and forever. Also, on his quest, he met a tribe with a life changing, state of the art modification to their then means of communication and connectivity which enabled inter-tribe portal of communication amongst the different tribes without previous complications and costs.

Armed with his new findings and eager drive to end the suffering of his people and others, he was able to go across spreading his new findings and was eventually able to convince all tribes to come together and achieve the goal which will ensure their survival forever.

Hence the “stir fry noodles” were created. The lasting solution to the suffering of all tribes. They lived happily ever after having achieved their common goal and living with a better means of of connecting which leaves room for more development and better times to come.

Plug by Alex and Lolu

Theme: Durability and Strength

A young lady tries several times and fails to find a solution to get maximum strength and durability.

All these are indicative of the day to day struggle of a young lady that doesn’t make strength and durability an important quality to look out for. At every time she lost something, her uncle always emphasized on the need to find strength and durability. One day, in what seems like a twist of fate, uncle’s phone falls and young lady starts to laugh hard. To her surprise, uncle’s phone isn’t spoilt. He can again reiterates the need for strength and durability. He also shows off his Nokia 8 & Bothie.
