The idea for this animated series comes from the love of Irish Heritage. The spoken word of peoples lives passed from person to person over the generation and sometimes lost to time. Gathering Heritage seeks to create an animated series based on audio recordings by Irish people talking about their life experiences. The animations will be voiced by the contributors in their own words and will be a mix of background music and short stories. Each episode will be five minutes long and will have five peoples stories animated around a common theme eg. going to school, holidays, worklife, travelling abroad etc. We have already captured 30 interviews digitally and have enough audio material for 12 episodes.
