Blue Zoo

Introducing Mamoon, a haunting animation inspired by the horrific plight of refugees fleeing Syria’s civil war. Mamoon follows the story of a mother and child whose lives descend into darkness when the moon mysteriously loses it’s light. As their own light begins to fade, the mother must work out how to save her child using a mysterious red glow.




Animation - Blue Zoo

Director - Ben Steer

Original Music - Matthew Wilcock for Zelig Sound

Mamoon is the brainchild of Blue Zoo’s Senior Animation Director Ben Steer, who’s response to the company’s shorts programme won the heart of Blue Zooers who voted his idea into production. The brief was to create an emotional, human story, with the proviso that the characters be animated in Maya and then projected and filmed. Ben took a truly experimental path to produce the film, projecting animated characters onto 3D sets crafted from polystyrene blocks.
