|Fopspeen’s first animated television series (the first to be broadcast, that is). And in Afrikaans nogal. Jakobus Johannes van Alleman (aka Seun) is a twelve-year old middle class Afrikaans boy who has dreams of one day becoming a documentary film maker, like Michael Moore. For his twelfth birthday he receives a video camera from his ouma, Ouma Martie Pansegrou. His mother thinks he is being spoilt, Ouma Martie thinks investing in a child's future is a necessity.
“Uit die Bloute” is Seun’s first attempt at documentary filmmaking. He is making a film about the Afrikaner, hoping that it will be sent into space, or buried in a time capsule, or something – so that in 100 year's time, people of the future, or the aliens from Alfa Centauri, will know who and what the Afrikaners were.
The series is broadcast on KYKNET as three minute animation channel branding episodes.
