Naked is an endearing and moving documentary/animation series in which children between the ages of ten and thirteen tell us personal stories about the changes their bodies are going through. What does it mean to grow breasts and pubic hair? How does it influence the way you see yourself and how do you deal with all these awkward changes? The series was shot on digital video and then animated through so-called rotoscope animation meaning the video-images were traced and colored.
This animated format compliments the stories told and results in series of amusing and moving portraits of pre-adolescents struggling with their changing bodies.
