Covid-19 and you[th]

In November 2020 I produced a film for Bath and North East Somerset Council and Bath Area Play Project. Which reflected the opinions and feelings of young people on the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns in the UK. The film was produced in five days during the 2nd national lockdown and features 7 young people, ranging from 10-19. The film is stop-motion animated and consists of over 800 individual frames. The project was challenging and really enjoyable. Taking on all the different roles involved with producing a short film allowed me to learn new programs and skills. I realised whilst creating the film, that animation and film-based art is something I would like to further explore and develop upon.
