Moving Voices – Musical Traditions

Our housed Irish Traveller families are very proud of their musical heritage and the children wanted to share their great grand daddy, Felix Doran’s musical talent through a stop motion animation.  The children have grown up hearing about Felix, and listening to his and his brother Mikey’s amazing tunes and so they worked together to imagine his travels throughout Ireland in his bow top caravan, before settling in Manchester, England.  The children storyboarded their ideas, learnt how to make plasticine models and filmed the animation before adding their voices and their grandaddy’s wonderful Uileann pipe playing.  To view the animation click here.

Alder Hey – Room With A View

Twin Vision worked for one year with patients attending Alder Hey Children’s Hospital for treatment for cancer.  The young animators, aged 3 to 19, worked with the Twin Vision team whilst receiving treatment, to create four amazing animations.  Supported by First Light, Children in Need and Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust.

In recognition of the fantastic talent, determination and   imagination these children and young people demonstrated throughout the project they were invited to attend an awards ceremony at Leicester Square Odeon, an evening with the BBC for Children in Need and a visit to the House of Lords to receive a Digital Heroes Award.  We thoroughly enjoyed the films and hope you do too.
