British children’s author and pilot Nick Rose visited Camps Bay Primary School last week to talk about his new TV series.
Myro on a Mission is an animated show about aeroplanes, starring a little microlight called Myro.
Nick was asked to speak to about 400 children about how he created the show. Having learnt to fly in Australia, Nick is planning on setting the first two series there and the third in South Africa. “When I was younger, I always dreamed of flying. I’ve come to Cape Town because the area has such a dramatic and beautiful backdrop for the series,” he said.
Nick has also been visiting Cape Town’s creative industries, looking for production companies to make the third and fourth series in the Western Cape.
“From movies to animation, Cape Town is clearly one of the world’s leading venues where people can work for projects all around the world either here in the city, or by working remotely using the internet”. To see Nick’s pilot episode, search for Myro, On A Mission on YouTube.
