01.07.19: Pleased to present this interpretation of 'From a Railway Carriage'. It's a mix of British Sign Language and Visual Vernacular and was translated and performed by actor Craig McCulloch. It's a rather lovely addition to a really rewarding project. Thanks to Craig and also to Solar Bear for their advice and support.
01.07.19: We are delighted to present the final version of 'From a Railway Carriage', an animated film created by children from North Queensferry Primary School and St Margaret's RC Primary in South Queensferry, the two films closest to each end of the iconic Forth Bridge. The film is the children's interpretation of Robert Louis Stevenson's poem 'From a Railway Carriage' from 'A Child's Garden of Verses'. They were asked to imagine how Stevenson would respond to the view from a 21st Century train on the Fife Circle Line. Thanks again to our Funders Creative Scotland, The Noel Coward Foundation, EIS, The Russell Trust and Foundation Scotland. Thanks also to Scotrail for their great support and to the teachers, and children from the schools involved who helped to make the project so enjoyable.
06.08.18: Next week sees the start of Phase 2 of the 'The 'Learning on Track: From a Railway Carriage' project. The project is being delivered by anim8s in partnership with a range of agencies including Scotrail and The Artline (Art and Heritage on the Railway Through Fife) and will engage 57 children from the two primary schools closest to each end of the Forth Bridge in a multi-arts celebration of Robert Louis Stevenson's poem 'From a Railway Carriage'. The project is being delivered by anim8s associate artists and guest artists Andy Cannon and Tamlin Wiltshire thanks to funding from Creative Scotland, The Noel Coward Foundation, EIS, The Russell Trust and Foundation Scotland. Look out for more information regarding the project which will include updates on the planned performance, exhibition and animated film. In the meantime here are shots from the sessions at North Queensferry Primary to whet your appetite.
