PRODUCTION OF 3D ANIMATION VIDEO “COCOA PRODUCTION”
The federally owned German International Cooperation (GIZ) is commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development of Germany (BMZ) to implement the Sustainable Smallholder Agri-Business Programme (SSAB) .
The objective is to help 404,600 West and Central African smallholders mainly in cocoa production zones of Nigeria, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, and Togo to increase sustainably their income and food supply from diversified production.
To tap in technology and market opportunities for income and sustainable production, African agricultural smallholders need relevant information. Despite well-developed penetration of rural mobile phones, investments in innovative training/information media and distribution systems still play a minor role. This means that possibilities for more effective and efficient agricultural extension are not or only partially used. The development of 3D animation videos on sustainable agricultural production and related issues is part of the intervention of SSAB. The initiative “Digital Africa” of BMZ supports the development of these 3D animations.
Cocoa is one of the biggest contributors to the GDP in the partner countries and provides income to a large number of aforementioned small-scale farmers. The yields of cocoa in the regions are still below the potential of Good Agricultural Practices (GAP). This is due to a variety of factors. Among them is the need to rejuvenate the overaged cocoa trees as well as an inconsistent application of Good Agricultural Practices.
Objective of the assignment:
The objective is to produce one (1) 3D Animation video on Good Agricultural Practices for cocoa producing smallholders. The emphasis will be on mature, i.e full yielding, cocoa farms (age between 5 and 20 to 25 years) after planting. The Animation will be developed based on a script provided by the programme.
The final video must be provided
(i) in optimal resolution for dissemination via projectors and
(ii) lowest resolution possible for dissemination via WhatsApp
