What is kernowland??

kernowland is a collection of six very popular children's books by author Jack Trelawny. 

Tizzie, nearly eleven, and Louis, seven-and-three quarters, are exploring Echo Cave when they are magically transported through the Crystal Pool to Kernowland in Erthwurld.
 This parallel world is a terrifying place full of vile villains and monstrous, genetically modified, mutant creatures, where heroic rebels are valiantly resisting Evile the Emperor and his Evil Empire. Kidnapped, sold into slavery, and cruelly separated, how will Tizzie and Louis ever find each other, escape Erthwurld, and get safely home to Mum and Dad?

Kernowland as a stop motion adventure

Remember The Wombles, Trap door, Fireman Sam, postman pat, The Herbs (parsley the lion), Pingu, The PJ'S, Paddington Bear, Bagpuss, Clangers........I really could go on forever. But these are our childhood memories of our favorite TV shows and one of the many reasons i became an animator.

Kernowland was introduce to me by our son Adam who has Autism and Asperger's syndrome, he came home From school all excited after a school visit from Kernowland author Jack Trelawny  http://www.jacktrelawny.co.uk Adam was awarded a signed book for some amazing dragon story-writing he did that day, the book quickly became part of his bed time routine and a family favorite. 


This inspired me to think about my own childhood and books and TV programs i loved, what if i could create something that my son loves, something that he could be involved with, watch grow. I had to contact the author to discuss with him my ideas.

To my delight jack Trelawny was impressed with the idea of a stop motion animation film and believed it was a magical format and something that his characters would work well in.

The most amazing thing about this animation project is the audience, normally you make a film and find the audience, build momentum then stretch to a wider audience. with kernowland the audience is all ready and waiting. the Children (fans) of the book have been shown small production updates for the last year to gain much needed feedback on characters and story development, they are excited and waiting.
