Mayor of Redcar & Cleveland’s Speech

Welcome to Saltburn Community Theatre for this years Animex Fringe event. The event has been organised by Teesside University’s  Institute of Digital Innovation. Once again the local community have been very much involved in the creation of the content for this event.

First we will see some animations by the children of Whitecliffe  Primary School followed by 4 animations produced a few years ago by adults in Skinningrove.

Then we will see some animations by students who are winners and runners up in the Animex awards followed by some animations created by the University’s Digital City Fellows.

We will then have a presentation from Councillor Mike Findler who, as my predecessor, opened this event last year and ended up in an animation himself (so who knows what lies in store for me !)

Finally we will see the World Première of “The Force is With You” which has been produced in partnership with the Institute of Digital Innovation, the Skinningrove Community, Whitecliffe Primary  School, Cleveland Police  and Redcar & Cleveland Community Safety Partnership.
