Scaborough Bombardment to Become Animated FIlm

Scaborough Bombardment to Become Animated FIlm

Published by Matthew Pells at 6:01am 26th October 2019.

The first world war bombardment of Scarborough is to be chronicled in a new stop motion animation.

The film will be premiered at next year's national armed forces day event in Scarborough.

Work to produce the film starts at a series of free animation workshops this week.

Lee Threadgold from the Animated Object Theatre Company is one of the producers.

Interviews with people who lived through the first world war bombardment of Scarborough in 1914 will form part of the soundtrack to a new documentary film about the attack.

Animated Object's Dawn Dyson-Threadgold says the events are drop in workshops open to everyone.

The animation workshops are taking place in Scarborough and Whitby over the next few days.

  • Saturday 26th October at Wood End , 10:00am - 12:00 pm
  • Monday 28th October at Whitby Library, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
  • Tuesday 29th October at Scarborough Library, 10:00 - 12:00 pm 

The film is part of a  programme of outreach activities that the Animated Object's team have been commisioned to produce by Scarborough Borough Council in the lead up to the Armed Forces Day National Event in 2020.

Other projects in the works include creating giant sculptures; making dozens of pieces for a children's procession; interviewing veterans and service personnel in collaboration with young people from the area; and developing and shooting a series of short films for broadcast online.
