Animated Documentary About The Trials Of Being A Teenager

Bloot (Naked) is a contemporary and wayward documentary/animation series in which children between the age of 10 and 13 tell us their funny and personal stories about the changes their bodies are going through.

What does it mean to grow breasts and pubic hair? How does it influence the way you see yourself? And how do you deal with all these awkward changes? The animated series Naked takes shape in an innovative and exciting form; the stories were first shot on digital video and then animated using the rotoscope animation technique, which means the video images were traced and colored on the computer. In a playful manner, the animated images comment on and compliment the stories; the memories, details and fantasies of the kids are captured in animated form. The result is a series of funny and moving portraits of pre-adolescents struggling with their changing bodies.
This animated series was made posible with support of the Dutch Cultural Broadcasting Fund.
