Project Description

The Princess & The Pendant  

Summer 2006

This silhouette animation was inspired by the work of 1920’s filmmaker Lotte Reiniger and was made with Year 1 children from Hartside Primary School, Crook County Durham. Through discussion and drama the children shared their ideas to help in the development of this original storyline.  It’s a tale of a young girl who ignores the wishes of her father and ventures from her home in Butterfly Land.


Funded by First Light, UK Film Council Lottery Fund and supported by Wear Valley Arts.

Winner of the under 12’s First Light Award 2006.
