Coastal Lives

By Video Artist – Iñigo Garrido/OaksBark.  Made with pupils from Barrhill and Pinwherry Primary Schools in South Ayrshire.

Project commissioned by South Ayrshire Council.

This project, based in Girvan, looked at industries in the past 50 years.   Primary children visited the McKechnie Institute, Mull of Galloway Lighthouse and interview and film local older people about their experiences.   They worked with a filmmaker Iñigo Garrido creating short animations inspired by these experiences, as well as deliver animation training to older people introducing them to new technologies.  The completed artwork is on DVD and displayed in an exhibition.

Below is some of the children’s artwork, and the making of.
