We’ve added a new strand to our Family Portraits project in Blakelaw by getting one of the local schools involved. The Hilton Primary Academy have been very helpful and are helping us to work with some great families from in and around Blakelaw. As part of this initiative we held a taster day for Year 4 pupils where they could try out our painted portraits and have them time lapsed captured whilst we also interviewed them and asked about their families. Later in the school in January we’ll be working more closely with specific family groups and I’m really looking forward to this.
Here are a few pictures from behind the scenes. You can see how we set up to time-lapse capture our paintings with overhead cameras linked to special animation software.
We made over 40 portraits some of which are here.
