Health & Safety Films

Health & Safety Films

The Napo series of films are produced in computer graphics. They feature characters in the world of work, faced with safety issues. The main character, Napo, and his partners express themselves in wordless language. Their stories have an educational value. They provoke questions and stimulate debate on specific aspects of safety at work. Sometimes they provide practical solutions or lead to them. It is this blend of education, cultural neutrality and humour set in a cartoon style that gives the 'Napo' series itsidentity.
