Animate Projects and Anim18 have commissioned seven renowned animators to create micro-shorts on the theme of Untold Tales. Together the films present an exciting and vibrant collection of stories exploring cultural heritage, historic curiosities, devoted communities, and ways individuals navigate modern life.
Annex Films' Laurie Hill and Osbert Parker took on the curious tale of a wasp brought into Victorian society and culture, and how her treatment reflects on contemporary life today.
Sir John has a problem with his pet wasp stinging him. Can he overcome its base urges through a tailored education programme and application of sweet treats? This documentary-fantasy chews over the thorny question with a delightful blend of cut out and stop frame animation styles.
The short is inspired by the life and writings of Sir John Lubbock (1834-1913) and the unnamed wasp.
