It's amazing weather we're having here in the UK and we are all looking forward to a family holiday by the seaside (the mountains and lakes actually but it doesn't fit). So here's a seasonal piece for an early summer with the kids. I was planning to write about something else from Matthias Hoegg from London's Beakus but got waylaid. Sam was made for the BBC's channel for young children, CBeebies. In a simple style so clean it's like new washing, Matthias reminds us what the beach is all about for youngsters. The little boy narrator talks about playing that game where one gets as near to the waves as possible without getting wet, dogs that shake their hair dry, and there's the esential bit of fantasy as mummy and daddy lift the boat into the clouds. "I can see the sea from my house. It sparkles in the sunshine." Well, I've been on a few when it hasn't. I wrote some time ago about Matthias here. Quality animation for kids with perfect imagery.
