From Mammoths to Matchsticks

We have animated 20,000 years of history in Bedford into a two and a half minute film! The animation is part of the Bedford River Valley Park heritage project we have been working on with Bedford Borough Council and the Marston Vale Trust.
We worked closely with the clients and a team of animators to bring the story of the park’s past to a teenage audience. The project originally called for a gaming app. We held a focus group with students at Bedford College to find out what media they were interested in and a smartphone app was low on their list of desires. Instead, they suggested we use YouTube to produce something short and interesting they could easily share with each other. This is what we created.
