Pool by the Sea

By Video Artist – Iñigo Garrido/OaksBark.  Made with pupils from St. Ninians and Moorfoot Primary Schools in Gourock

Project commissioned by Inverclyde Council.

These intergenerational animation projects (see below the earlier film) are about the Gourock Open Swimming Pool, which is now 100 years old.  The pupils involved interviewed some local residents to find about the history of the pool, then made an animation based on some of their stories.

One of the oldest people interviewed in the film is 96 years old Duncan Chestnutt, who was ten when he first visited the Gourock Pool.

These are some pictures of the making of the animation.
