This film was the reason Ptara went from a blog and freelancing to a film production company. We shot and edited Dara Says in our old address Aberystwyth.
The United States and Ukraine
We didn’t film most of the United States and Ukraine, but we assembled material in the editing room, corrected the colour and sound, and added in music. The original film was meant to have animation, but through research we found that the original storyline was not entirely accurate. So, we decided to let the source materials tell the story.
Bonjour Dewi is not complete, and is really just a rough draft. However, it has been tested in two schools, and found to be an effective educational aid for encouraging primary school children to learn basic French. We hope to have more episodes soon, and to improve the existing ones.
