The project took two years to complete with a 30-member crew and a budget of $1m.

Blessing Amidu is Hot Ticket Productions’ CEO and founder and was both the film’s director and executive producer. She says she was motivated by her daughter to participate in this project and self-fund it.

The film also captured Bisi Adetayo as a lead animator who had experience in many foreign projects, including the cult blockbuster ‘Game of Thrones‘ at the moment when many people turn to fantasy series.
