Abstract: This animation seeks to challenge traditional themes of narrative structure through the use of digital media. The resulting piece works on a number of levels and is accessible to a wide audience. It maintains the essence of toy theatre whilst being aware of current media practice, software and techniques. The visuals are influenced by 19th Century designs and rendered in three-dimensional effect with depth and lighting. Maintaining the story within the frame of the traditional toy theatre; Arnott’s research continues this traditional form of storytelling in current media form for the modern child. This research concerns the transposition of 18/19th century toy theatre storytelling into digital animations, keeping true to the original form and aesthetic which enabled rich imaginative play through effective staging of stories. The project was proposed to Pollock’s Toy Museum; production developed through meetings, collaboration and detailed research. The work reflects traditional aspects of toy theatre but is designed to appeal to a ‘media savvy’ public. It is a synthesis of ancient and modern methods of storytelling and production values

Description: The text is adapted from the 1836 version of John Kilby Green (1790 -1860) – the action is set in Medieval Baghdad and closely mirrors present day events in that city. Arnott worked closely with Edmond Fawdry, Director of Pollock’s Toy Museum and Paul J. Weighell, Curator of Collections.
