EARTHrise is a stop-motion animated short that will use natural materials and found objects to unearth an ancient mystery buried deep beneath Harrow. Listen to the voices of the young as they tell their tale. Witness the ground tremble as they unleash their imaginations onto the streets of Harrow. Watch, as the earth begins to rise... Made exclusively for Harrow Arts Centre, local young people will play a crucial part in narrating and creating the soundscape for EARTHrise.
Alongside EARTHrise, a series of stop-motion animation tutorial videos will also be released online here and across our social media channels. Nearly everyone already has everything they need at home to create their very own animation. Three short videos, presented by Louisa, will tell you everything you need to get creative in your own time, using items from the garden or around the house.

Louisa Ashton is a writer, puppeteer and animator from Kent. She has puppeteered for companies such as the Royal Shakespeare Company, Soho Theatre, Little Angel Theatre, the BBC, the Globe and Polka Theatre. She has also written plays for the award-winning theatre company Sparkle and Dark, which she co-founded 10 years ago with director Shelley Knowles-Dixon (www.sparkleanddark.com). Louisa’s love of puppetry and theatrical storytelling has led her to begin experimenting with animation, recently creating a part-animated retelling of The Selfish Giant for the Little Angel Theatre. www.louisaashton.com
