The Tin Forest - Winter Gardens: National Theatre of Scotland Production for The Commonwealth Games 2014

Animation made for one of the Glasgow Commonwealth 2014 projects with The National Theatre of Scotland

Based on the children's book 'The Tin Forest' by Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson, the animation was created to reflect Springburn's economic heritage and to gather hope and dreams for the community's future.

The animation was projected onto Springburn's Winter Gardens for the night of the performance/event on the 20th March 2014.

Audio was made for the project by the talented Tom de Majo

The Tin Forest - Made in Springburn: National Theatre of Scotland Production for The Commonwealth Games 2014

Animation made for one of the Glasgow Commonwealth 2014 projects with The National Theatre of Scotland

The Tin Forest: 'Made in Springburn' was a community based show, presented and performed by local people of Springburn, retelling the stories collected of the past 100 years of Springburn's history

I was asked to produce a display of suitcases that contained the stories of the project and images of the past that was then projected at the end of the show. The branches of the Winter Gardens event tree were incorporated with the textures made by the children of the local schools of Springburn
