Animating John Gray

We’ve named our new heritage centre after John Gray – but who was he?

Four secondary schools in East Lothian decided to find out, with nine S1 classes exploring his story, and then creating animations about him. Find out more about the project here.

A judging panel made up of animator/artist Gemma Coyle, artist Glen McBeth and JGC team member Helen Bleck had the difficult task of choosing winners from each participating class – it was very difficult to make a choice, but our eight winners are shown below. Have a look on YouTube and watch the others in our featured playlists.
