Move over Wallace and Gromit! Our talented Moving Gang characters are busy dusting off their mantlepieces and clearing space for their very first Oscars.
Stanley Bear, Kev the Koala, Monty Moose, Khloe the Kiwi and Lenny the Lion are hitting the bright lights of Hollywood, and young fans across the world are about to catch a glimpse of these superstars’ debut blockbuster movie.
To create this masterpiece, the talented Moving Gang had to act and pose in a massive 9,000 different photographs. The result? A brand new ‘stop motion’ animation, focusing on leading man and future big screen heavyweight – Stanley Bear.
Our screenplay focuses on Stanley in his previous life – spending his days moving from cave to cave across the United States, searching out the perfect location for a good old bit of hibernation. Enter stage left the rest of the Moving Gang – Stanley couldn’t ask for better supporting actors – or more warmhearted friends.
In the movie Stanley’s acting skills are pushed to the limit when he finds out his on-screen Dad is moving to London for work, and he must go too. How will this unexpected twist affect the close-knit friendship he has with the rest of the Moving Gang?
Spoiler-alert! Moviegoers needn’t worry because Stanley’s character quickly discovers he just can’t get enough of London and its bright lights. In the film, he finds he can easily stay in touch with all his mates. They even visit him from time-to-time. It is quite simply the best of all worlds and very exciting.
And the action doesn’t stop here – the Moving Gang also star in their own comic strip, with lots more lovely stories and adventures for fans to enjoy.
So how did these lovable celebrities find fame? We understand that relocating can be an anxious time for little ones – and even some bigger ones – and we created our Moving Gang as a bit of fun. Today, they have evolved into a world-wide phenomena, entertaining and educating children as they embark on exciting new life-chapters.
At John Mason International, we pride ourselves on our ability to look after entire families when relocating them – not only the adults.
Our Moving Gang characters help children understand what is happening – giving them situations they can relate to in a fun context. They also offer parents a useful conversation starter.
Stanley Bear very much hopes our young clients enjoy following his adventures – and that he and his friends will soon be major stars gracing the Hollywood Walk of Fame…
