I am working on making videos that will teach children to play chess. I currently have some up at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5OQBEgg-ds and want to spice them up by having animated characters teach chess. Im not sure if what kind of animation or graphics I want it to be and am open to ideas, but something to appeal to kids 7-10 years old.
I see this as having a group of kids who sail around the world learning chess. They would be conversing with a character that would teach them about the chess board, maybe with a chess board with animations in the background or even with them playing on it, as long as it is clear and seen.
