"Computers and software are sold in stores and once you have money you could buy. Real talent is different though, you have to recognise it, recruit it, and then give it the freedom to flourish. That's the difference between us and the others." - T. Alex Graham, Chief Storyteller

Our Story

We, Tinninben Animation, are storytellers. We are among the inheritors of the great storytelling traditions of West Africa brought to this region of the world by slaves. The history, crafts, and culture of a people were preserved in storytelling and by the same means a new generation was educated. In Guyana, at the end of a story, the story teller would say “and the tinnin ben(d) and the story end.” An aluminium can, like those that contain food products, was called a “tinnin” we are not sure what is the connection between the “tinnin” and the end of the story but being faithful to the storytelling tradition we inherited we celebrate the end of a good story in our name.
