Here are some excerpts from my latest film with City of Westminster Archives. The film is called ‘Pom-pom’ Plays The Game and tells the story of Robert Pom-pom Whiting, who was a footballer and soldier during World War I.
The film combines archive stills (from the Westminster Archives collection as well as some of Pom-pom’s family photos, courtesy of his grand-daughter Julia Haydock); stop-motion animation and After Effects animation of artwork created by attendees of Diwali in the Square, which took place in Trafalgar Square in October 2014.
The sequences here were filmed at College Park School in London and were animated by students there.
The animation and editing is nearing completion and I look forward to sharing the finished film with you soon.
