To encourage social inclusion through 3D “edutainment” animation and to empower the hearing-impaired for gainful employment through the production process
The project team will produce a series of 3D "edutainment" (blending educational and entertainment elements) animation featuring the cartoon character "Rubber Boy" to raise public awareness on the use of sign language and to promote social inclusion.
Learning courses on production of animation and 3D modelling technology will be provided to hearing-impaired persons. During the course of training, trainees will be recruited to take part in the production of “Rubber Boy” animation series. It is expected that the training and work experience will enhance their employability and lay the foundation for their career development in the industry.
