York College Students And ITV Unite For Nursery Rhymes Animation Project


Story from The Press.

College students in York are working on animations for a national television broadcaster.

A group of York College graphic design students are working on ITV’s Signed Stories Project.

The first years have been tasked by the broadcaster’s creative team to produce animations for popular nursery rhymes, which will be performed in two different sign languages for deaf children around the world.

The most successful student animations will appear on the ITV Signed Stories app, available on the App Store.

Students will respond to a brief to animate six nursery rhymes: The Incey Wincey Spider, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Alice the Camel, The Wheels on the Bus, Humpty Dumpty and Baa Baa Black Sheep.

The students’ animations need to demonstrate an awareness of how deaf children watch and enjoy stories in order for ITV to add sign language, captions, music and sound effects to the final edits.
