Elegba, who is also CEO of Lagos toon studio Spoof Animation, said Uniquely Me is an old idea he felt would be better told in 3D animation.

“I have always had stories I felt would be best communicated through 3D and now Spoof Animation is finally embracing 3D. Uniquely Me is a short film where imagination meets reality,” he said.

Described as an adventure of authenticity and empowerment, the film takes viewers on a journey to embrace their individual uniqueness and stand out in a world where everyone wants to fit into what’s trending. In a world where conformity is king, breaking free and embracing your uniqueness is a mental battle, according to Elegba.

Uniquely Me will premiere on Valentine’s Day next year. Spoof’s previous credits include Hero Corps, Soul Ties and Ajaka: Lost in Rome.
