'BUILDING THE RIBBLEHEAD VIADUCT'

Settle Stories / The Yorkshire Festival of Story / Ribblehead 150

This is arguably the most impressive man-made landmark in the Yorkshire Dales and is part of the Settle-Carlisle Railway. To celebrate this anniversary, Settle Stories with help of funding from the National Heritage Lottery, commissioned me to create a short shadow film to bring to life these stories for families and younger audiences.  You can watch the video yourself below:

'Stunning. Beautifully done' Audience feedback

'We've had such wonderful comments about this piece - really special' Settle Stories

As part of the Ribblehead 150 project, Settle Stories also created a children’s activity booklet.  To coincide with the film I designed activity sheets of the shadow puppet characters to be included in the booklet, allowing children to create their own Ribblehead shadow play at home too. And here are those activity sheet designs...
