An animated film featuring memories from Dreamland has been launched by the Dreamland Trust.
My Dreamland is a short film produced using archive images from the Dreamland Trust. The images have been animated to bring them to life and combined with stories from members of the public talking about their memories of visiting and working at the park.
The film was produced by Sprankenstein Studios in Margate and brings together modern technology and historic images from the Trust’s collections. East Kent College in Broadstairs worked with the Trust and Sprankenstein Studios on the audio for the film.
The college also produced a second film My Dreamland, behind the scenes, showing how the film was made and featuring additional material.
Both films are can be seen on the Dreamland Trust website at http://www.dreamlandtrust.org.uk/Gallery
Bernie Morgan, Chair of the Dreamland Trust, said: “This film was a new and very different project for the Trust. It uses the historical aspect of Dreamland in a way that makes it both current and exciting. The film has also given us the opportunity of working with local business, education providers and the community. I hope that the public will enjoy watching both films.”
The Dreamland Trust is backed by the Heritage Lottery Fund and committed to preserving and promoting the heritage of Dreamland through a programme of community based projects for all ages.
