COMMENT RATATINER- 52×11′-2D – target : 5-7 years
Faced with their fears, children do not know how to react.
Our series, Comment Ratatiner will allow them to meet them closely and to experiment with humor, through games, funny effective methods of shrinking. The main narrative challenge is to properly deal with the subject of fear with regard to our target. “Comment Ratatiner” is a kind of “thriller” for toddlers. We play with fear and the monsters that symbolize it. We instill the thrill without ever really being scary or going too far. Children must be tickled by monsters and want to react and shrivel them up. But they also need to have a bit of the willies so that the subject is not too abstract or devoid of meaning and sensations. Thus, the shrivel, the liberating and jubilant sequence of the episode, finds all its flavor.
The shrivelling is the moment everyone waits for. It relieves and amuses but for that it must be funny and inventive!
Graphically adapted from the famous comic strip by Roland Garrigue and Catherine Leblanc: “Comment Ratatiner”
