Uma and Umi- TV Series ORIGINAL IDEA: Mariano Villegas González and Adriana Vignolo. _ Project´s Concept. Title: Uma and Umi. Technique 2D. Target audience: Pre-school. 4-5 years. Format: Animated TV series. Duration: 12 episodes / 11 minutes each. General Idea: A girl and her dog travel round the World showing their traditions and culture. _Storyline development: Uma, a very young girl, has a house in a tree in her back garden. In the afternoon she generally climbs up with her stuffed toy dog called Umi. With great imagination, with each step her house goes up and up going above the clouds. When they are high up, her dog comes to life and starts interacting with her. They can see planet earth out of the window, where each country has a different colour. Surprisingly a shining light draws her attention determining the destination of her new adventure. They magically descend through a slide from the house. As they approach, the colour of the chosen place takes up all the background. In a first visual tour, they discover the characteristics of the place (typical architecture, representative monuments, etc.) The dog escapes and runs to a place where he can hide. Uma, rather than get angry, gets ready to play with her pup, beginning the adventure. She meets local children who help her find the dog. Interacting with them, Uma begins to discover the culture of the place, like the dances, music, clothing and typical dishes. At he least expected moment, Umi gives himself away by chasing a cat among the people who dance, trying to catch some clothes or following the smell of some nice food. Uma and Umi meet again and everybody celebrates. They get a group picture taken and at the flash there is a transition to the tree house where Uma is showing the photo to her dog Umi and they end up putting the picture away in the small trunk with the souvenirs of their trips.

_ Brief synopsis The story is about a young girl called Uma and Umi, her stuffed toy dog, who magically discover the world through their traditions and they make new friends. Educational value: The most important aspect is that through fun and games we gain new knowledge about what we are like, and what our neighbours are like, opening up frontiers and generating friendship links among the peoples of the world, beginning with children, who are by nature more open and receptive, fostering respect for what is different. The different episodes are filled with surprises and fast-paced adventures to keep the attention of the children and get a connection with the themes presented. _ Description of the characters: Uma: A young girl (under 6) very clever and imaginative and above all very curious, which takes her to travel all over the world. As she is very nice, she makes friends easily anywhere and she manages to enjoy the adventures she encounters. Umi: Her stuffed toy-dog. Uma´s Inseparable friend, which becomes real when they go up the tree house. He is the one to start the adventure because, like all puppies, he is very naughty and he escapes and hides somewhere, forcing Uma to look for him, walking around and getting to know the place and meeting new friends who help her look for him. Supporting characters. Children from each country in their typical costumes. No more than three, always kind, show their culture and what makes them proud of their land. They generously help Uma in her adventures to find Umi.

ith the support of the Preparatory Action MEDIA INTERNATIONAL of the European Union, CARTOON is organising the 1st meeting between European and Latin American animation professionals. The 3-day meeting entitled CARTOON CONNECTION will take place in Buenos Aires from 25 to 27 November during Expotoons, an International Animation Festival whose objective is to promote Latin American animation worldwide. CARTOON CONNECTION is a programme intended to initiate and establish lasting professional relationships between European creators, producers and distributors and their Latin American counterparts.

This first meeting will also allow a limited number of Latin American producers attending CARTOON CONNECTION to talk to a European audience of their on‑going animation projects (series, features, specials) to see if they can arouse interest within the European animation market.
