What is the film about?

Immigration is a fundamental part of London’s history.

This film looks at what it was like for different types of immigrants arriving around the 1960s and the conditions they lived with.

It centres around a townhouse in North London which would have been converted into bedsits and rented to immigrants having difficulty finding housing, often with a few families to each floor.

What influenced it?

My influences come primarily from my family background (Spain and Dominica), and an interest in how migration affects people as well as the society they come to.
It’s also quite topical, with immigration being such a big political issue in this country.

A little background information...

The film was made for the Final Major Project of my BA (Hons) Illustration Degree.

How was the film made?

The film is a mixture of 2D and 3D sets, all drawn and animated by hand.
Stopmotion filmed in Dragon, edited in FCP.

@lewisheriz @skwigly That first time you see it move is such a buzz and then you add sound and it just enters a whole new stratosphere.

@themooks @skwigly I know it's kind of obvious, but I used to see it as 'important but secondary'. I don't see it as secondary any more.
