The Goat Herder and his Lots and Lots and Lots of Goats

'Winner of the Independent Animation Award 2012 at The Blue Plum Animation festival Tennessee and chosen By Vimeo for their 'Staff Picks'.
Inspired by my two year old niece who having seen a goat herder in Spain kept chanting 'lots and lots and lots of goats!'. The story follows a day in the life of a goat herder and his flock of goats as they travel up and down the mountains of Spain. Andy Cabic, lead singer of the band Vetiver kindly gave me permission to use his track for the film which was fantastic.
There is no dialogue. The story is told using sound and movement.
I created this film during a break between animating on 'Peppa Pig' and 'Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom'.
I would love to make this in to an app for the iPAD as an interactive animated storybook for kids.'

A great animation by who I think does a great job animating this simple story.
