Client: Hastings Pier

What was involved?...

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.

Getting hands on and interactive …

Hastings pier wanted some material that children could engage with as part of their educational material. We created push pin characters and colouring in sheets themed around the characters that feature within the animations.

“Candy floss and ice cream.
Sometimes I made myself poorly eating too much!”

Using photos and memories from members of the public, we created an┬áseries of animations to tell stories about the pier based an oral histories collected from people’s memories of the pier over the years.
