Animagic

14/08/2009

Animagic was a filmmaking project that offered a diverse group of young people aged 14-19 the opportunity to express their thoughts regarding life in the UK. The participants used their own words and animated illustrations to express their personal stories, and worked together to create an animated film over a period of months. During the project, they learned the creative and technical aspects of filmmaking and animation.

Involving youth centres in the local area

This group worked with youth centres in the local area and second-generation young people from the Asian communities in Banbury and Oxford. These young people were offered a platform to explore cultural stereotypes they had experienced both in the UK and in the country of their family’s origin.

The groups involved in the projects were Animation Station in Banbury, Union Street Centre for Young People, East Street Centre, Oxford Film and Video Makers for screening. The project also involved some shared events with OVADA and Pegasus Theatre and associations through Faces of Oxfordshire 2007, Local network Fund, Oxford Inspires and Oxford City Council.

Screening

The films were screened in Oxford at Oxford Film and Video Makers in 2008. The project was led by Vikaas Mistry with DEFA Media Production, and was linked with an associated project that was running in Banbury.
