Two Little Girls

Animation short


Character design – Background design – layouts

Short movie I worked on directed by my good friend Peter Baynton.

Two Little Girls aims to warn young women in eastern Europe of the dangers of being sex trafficked. The film reflects the two most common ways eastern European women and girls are tricked and lured from their homes by people they know and trust. The film was made in consultation with five Albanian women who were trafficked into the UK.

It was conceived, written and produced by Ruth Beni of Animage Ltd. Tandem Films produced it with Animage, and Peter directed it. Ben Fiquet designed the backgrounds and characters. It was narrated by Juliet Stevenson.

The film will initially be distributed in Albania. As well as being shown on TV and in cinemas, it will be freely distributed directly to schools, community groups, woman’s organisations and churches. After Albania, Two Little Girls will be rolled out across other countries in Eastern Europe in an extensive campaign to combat sex trafficking.

It is estimated that sex trafficking is worth $12 billion a year to the criminals who trade in women’s misery.
