A World Imagined 2

 

Chandos School in Highgate Birmingham has high numbers of newly arrived families. A Year 2 class from the school,worked with Melanie and London-based animator Jo Lawrence over a 3 month period, to develop characters, write stories, make puppets and create a series of short animated films. The whole project was documented by Manchester-based photographer and film-maker Hafsah Naib with the children. The finale of the project was a screening of all the children's films at the Electric Cinema in Birmingham.
