Inspired by Will's two year old niece who having seen a goat herder in Spain kept chanting 'lots and lots and lots of goats!'. The story follows a day in the life of a goat herder and his flock of goats as they travel up and down the mountains of Spain. Andy Cabic, lead singer of the band Vetiver kindly gave Will permission to use his track for the film which was fantastic.

Will created this film during a break between animating on 'Peppa Pig' and 'Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom'.
He would love to make this in to an app for the iPad as an interactive animated storybook for kids.
