I am currently working on stop motion animation 'Heirlooms'.
The school set needs developing. I have included this photo as it helps to build an impression of the world that I am creating.
'Heirlooms' is about a group of school children who are haunted by the ghost of Peg Prowler.
Peg Prowler can be seen in the top left hand corner of the photograph, as she walks across the school yard.
Twins Nixie and Faye notice Peg Prowler as she glides past. After this scene they find Peg Prowlers discarded glove in the school yard. They take it home with them.
The teacher has written information about Henry VII and his wives. Its hardly noticeable but included it because of the association with be-headings. Peg Prowler is a headless ghost, her bonnet rests where her head should be.
The classroom displays also feature subtle details. I have cut out forms similar to Peg Prowler. Are the children imagining Peg Prowler because of what they have been learning at school? Or it could be that the impact of seeing Peg Prowler has influenced their school work.
