Saving Joule

Trunk and Peepshow Collective director Pete Mellor has created a fantastic educational film for Saudi children. Peepshow were approached by The Edge Picture Company to produce an animation for KCA London and their client the Mishkat Interactive Centre for Atomic and Renewable Energy in Saudi Arabia.

The film is aimed at 6 to 10 year olds and tells the story of Joule, an adorable robot trying to power his ship and rejoin his lost fleet. He is assisted in his search by a friendly alien who shows him that there are alternative energy sources available such as solar, wind and nuclear power. With nods to great sci-fi classics such as WALL-E, Avatar and Star Wars the short is full of humour, tension and jeopardy as Joule completes his quest.
