Mark of Uru Animation Story by Obinna Owuekwe

‘Mark of Uru’ is an animated web series written and directed by Obinna Owuekwe and produced by Segun Williams. The animation story set within the Igbo tradition follows the challenges of a young girl, Azuka, born with a ‘cursed’ birthmark. Owuekwe also lends his voice to two of the characters: The Warrior and Isi Agu. The costumes and makeup are delightful and the series which has a woman empowerment theme embedded in it, is simply brilliant. You can also hear varied accents mostly Igbo and Efik.

  6. I think it looks great, even if there is a lot that needs to be worked onw hen it comes to the motion and voice dubbing, and I’m glad the creator decided not to do anything stereotypically ‘African’.
