Amazing Things Happen is the creation of independent animation director Alex Amelines. The short was released in April 2017 to coincide with World Autism Awareness, and was made available online for free. It tackles the complex subject of autism with simple descriptions, relatable situations and positive language. It is primarily aimed at 7-11 year old children.
For nearly 2 years Alex wrote, animated and directed the project in his spare time. “After talking with the SENCO at my child’s school, it became clear that there was a lack of engaging visual material about autism for children, which is a shame because it seems the perfect stage to plant the seeds of tolerance and understanding for later life. That’s what drove me to make this animation”.
