Students’ military animation premiers

A group of Block 3 and 4 students have worked on an animation that focused on the lives of people in the British military and their families. Having visited Bordon barracks and interviewed several soldiers who had been on tour we gained a greater perspective into their experiences, which gave us the opportunity to explore different forms of animation and music to convey aspects of a soldier’s life and draw parallels to that of their childhood in particular. We went through a process of developing our animation with an artist, an animator and a musician, and finally had our film along with many others from different schools and youth groups premiered at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Overall it was a really interesting experience and we learnt a lot about animation. View film.
