Jamaican book turns into an animated film

Jamaica-born author Tilsa Wright has translated her popular Star Boy book series into a short animated film with the help ofSt Catherine-based young animator Stephen Williamson.

Williamson, who won fourth place at Jamaica's very first animation conference in June 2013, saw Tilsa's vision and rendered an award-worthy 10 minutes short film which stars Tania Watson-Lane, voiced by internationally known actress and blogger Carla Moore.

The amazing score features grassroots singers Jane Macgizmo withBlack Skin and Trouble Maker by N. Payne.

Wright stated: Star Boy animation has been a year of highs and low. At the end, it truly melts my heart to see the unison of young Jamaican talent. The key person I would love to benefit from this project is Stephen Williamson, to help build and highlight his portfolio and small business. Second, my girl with a heart of pure gold, Jane Macgizmo, her Erykah Badu sound is exceptionally different coming from the land of reggae and dancehall. She has even caught the attention of billboard contributing writer Patricia Meschino. Black Skin is just plain outright perfect. To the production team and other actors, I deeply thank you and wish you continued blessing".

The Star Boy series are available on Amazon and Kindle.
