What we do

Story Lab uses animation and green screen technology to explore learning and creativity with children in schools or as part of a family learning project. We explore digital literacy with children from 0-11 years of age, whilst still keeping a hands-on element of making, art, design, and storytelling. 

 Longer-term projects have been developed in schools linking closely with literacy and curriculum topics and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. We have also developed themed Green Screen Pop-Up events, which have taken place at festivals, and events. 

“Written, performed and illustrated by the kids, they loved it.  Characters were shared so every child played a part, as well as drawing the scenes and helping to write and film. ”
