In 2004 as part of the Artists in Schools program, local animator Dave Jones worked with students at Natimuk Primary School to produce the wonderful In My Day.
By interviewing senior Natimuk residents, the children created illustrations to bring Natimuk Primary School, 1934, to life.
In My Day has gone on to win numerous awards and generated such an amount of interest that Dave revisited the senior residents and school kids to create In My Day: The Inside Story, which reveals storytelling and animation processes.
In My Day: The Inside Story
This project was a collaboration between the students, older members of the community and local animator Dave Jones. This video records the process.
Funded through "Artists in Schools", a partnership of Arts Victoria and the Department of Education and Training; "Images of Age" Department for Victorian Communities; and Regional Arts Victoria.
