With 8 quirky stories selected, the Splendid Things team set about transforming these into a series of fabulous animations with the help of Robot Foundry VFX, community groups and volunteers. Our team worked with different groups to write scripts based on the stories and to produce a set of storyboards that depicted how they should appear on-screen. We recruited a team of volunteers to help support the delivery of these workshops and to work alongside the participants to develop creative ideas.
The talented folk at Robot Foundry VFX then used these scripts and storyboards to create animated, re-imaginings of the newspaper articles that form the basis of the online and physical resource packs and heritage trails that will be used stage three of the project. Exciting stuff!
