Children’s channel CITV runs a popular competition, ‘Share a Story’, where children are invited to create a storyboard for an animation they would like to see developed and professionally produced for television. Bottletop was asked by CITV to animate the story of Pod the Odd Person for Serafina Wagner who was one of the eight animation competition winners.

Serafina’s original storyboard was taken as inspiration for the characters and recorded her own voiceover to accompany the animation. At the Winners Day at the Lowry Theatre in Manchester Serafina was congratulated by Peter André who was on hand to award certificates to all of the successful storytellers.
