A Brand New Bridge
Client: Plymouth City Council Natural Infrastructure
Synopsis: As work on a new footbridge at Kinterbury Creek (Barne Barton, Plymouth) commenced in April 2016, we worked with primary school students at Riverside Community School to make this short animation marking the moment.
Brief: This film was part of a wider multi-partner commission from the city council. After the original bridge in the nature reserve had been destroyed by fire, the council wanted to work closely with the community to design a replacement. Take a Part CIC lead on a community design process for the bridge itself, and we worked alongside, engaging local youth groups and Riverside Community School to provide creative documentation of the project.
Our Approach: For this aspect of the commission we wanted to involved a younger age group in the project and delivered two day-long sessions to work with year 4 and 5 students and make this simple animation. In addition to this film we also worked with young people to produce a photographic series of the construction process.
Impact: We worked with 10 students on the film, which was used by the client to promote the new facilities. The bridge was opened to the public in July 2016.
