Hastings Pier

Hastings Pier re-opened in April 2016 and we were asked to create a film for the visitor centre, to entertain and inform adults and children about the history of the pier.

Broken up into six key sections, the stories are brought to life by animated characters. Using a traditional paper puppet style to replicate the vibe of the seaside holiday, we ensured that the show was both amusing and engaging to keep children entertained.To accompany the show we also created printable colouring sheets and cut out split-pin puppets to be used in educational sessions.

Ambitious about autism

Ambitious About Autism is the national charity for children and young people with autism. They provide services at their schools and colleges; and raise awareness and understanding about autism.

We created an animation and documentary for a fundraising event at TalkTalk, to help explain autism itself and the work that the charity does.  For the animation by using characters to tell the story, we were able to convey emotion and explain the problems that children and young people with autism can come across in their every day life. With voiceover and on-screen text, we highlighted the key messages that the charity wanted to convey, in how the funding they receive can help make the ordinary possible. For the documentary we spent a day following an Ambitious College student, Conor, in his daily activities at home and at the college.

Talk Talk – Digital Heroes

Every year, TalkTalk choose 9 people who have used technology in extraordinary ways to help their community and beyond. These heroes ranged from a blind smart-device tutor, to a couple who make educational sing-a-long films for children with autism. Each winner is given a whopping £5,000 prize to go towards their project.

TalkTalk asked us to make a series of mini-documentaries about the winners. These films were shown online and screened in a ceremony at the Houses of Parliament, where an overall winner was chosen. The eclectic mix of heroes were an inspiration with their dedication and willingness to serve others.
