In May of 2015, we brought you the news that Northern Media and Wakefield Council had teamed up to create three contemporary and user-friendly animations for their project, the Wakefield Local Offer.
We are now able to announce that we were recently commissioned to produce a further three animations but this time for North Lincolnshire Council and their related project, the North Lincolnshire Council Local Offer.
The Local Offer is a project that is organised to help people find out about the services and support available to children and young people with special education needs or disabilities. The animations provided were a success last time for Wakefield Council – this led to a recommendation to North Lincolnshire Council, who in turn got in touch with the team here at Northern Media.
In discussions with North Lincolnshire Council they made clear their desire for the children involved in the Local Offer to have a part in the project, which led to the idea of having the children supply drawings that would make up the animations. As well as this, some of the children did some script reading to be used as voiceovers.
Sameena Choudry, SEND Project Manager, said the following: “We are delighted with the three animations. Northern Media came up with a concept that we loved as it engaged with the people involved in the Local Offer.
We were on a tight deadline as we wanted to showcase them at the SEND Conference, but Northern Media supplied everything in time. Some of the children introduced the animations at the SEND Conference and they went down extremely well with a standing ovation at the end. We are looking forward to working with Northern Media on future projects.”
