Naked is a contemporary and wayward documentary/animation series in which children between the age of ten and thirteen tell us their funny and personal stories about the changes their bodies are going through. What does it mean to grow breasts and pubic hair? How does it influence the way you see yourself and how do you deal with all these awkward changes? The series takes shape in innovative and exiting form; the stories were shot on digital video and then animated through so-called rotoscope animation, which means the video-images were traced and colored. In a playful manner the animated images comment on compliments the stories told; their memories, details and fantasies are captured in animated form. The result is a series of funny and moving portraits of pre-adolescents struggling with their changing bodies.

The subjects of the 6 episodes are: 'BREAST', 'SWEAT', 'HAIR', 'SEX', 'MENSTRUATION' and 'HEAVY'.
