That Yorkshire Sound
An audio-driven animated documentary covering a day of life in Yorkshire.
An audio-driven animated documentary covering a day of life in Yorkshire. This is a rhythmical glimpse of the diverse life and culture that exists in this varied landscape. It captures the sound of Yorkshire, from its multicultural bustling cities like Bradford and Sheffield to the delicate sounds of birds in the countryside and the hypnotic rhythm of the motorways and train tracks. The narrative was developed to encapsulate the varied experience across a cross section of England's largest county.
Marcus grew up in Pontefract, West Yorkshire and wanted to reflect his experiences of the diverse landscapes and cultures on his doorstep. Over several months he worked with animators Ana Stefaniak and Matthew Armitage to produce the animation using a mixture of watercolour, oil pastel and digital techniques. Thousands of drawings make up this two-minute documentary using colour and sound to move between many different perspectives. Marcus recorded sound from multiple locations in Yorkshire focusing on different landscapes and the rhythmical aspects of life in Yorkshire. Working with sound designer Marian Mentrup they edited these recordings into a piece that moves quickly between locations and people living life throughout Yorkshire.
