The Great Story is a series of 12 stop motion animations, focusing on the important and defining events of the First World War, together with a behind the scenes feature undertaken by The Bridge for Heroes in association with Riarmato Productions. The project involves 12 groups of young people from 3 different countries including the UK, Latvia and Germany, who are going to work with several individual specialist and professionals in creating 2-3 minute long stop motion animations.
The aims of the project are to create a series of stop motion animations focusing and showcasing important and defining events of World War I. The animations will enable the audience to learn about history in an engaging way. We also aim to create excellent working relationships and partnerships with the organisations and people involved, which will enable us to collaborate on further projects. The project will record and preserve history, for future generations.
The project has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund
