Drawn Animation at Twyford St Mary’s CE School

Quirky Pictures just run a beautiful workshop with Twyford St Mary’s CE School for a project for Twyford Waterwork Trust. We are creating with Mewlab a professional animation narrating the history of  the waterworks. We enlisted a little bit of help from the pupils of St Mary CE School with sketching  and animation sessions to create material that will be used in the finished film. The result of the workshops are stunning.  We have included  the making of and an examples below. More information about the project can be found at  www.twtanimation.wordpress.com.
