For our author project we were given a famous person at random to research , and then make a 1 minute biographical film about their life.

i got given Allen Ginsberg. He is famous for his poetry during the 1960s and was part of the beat generation

I started of researching from books and films, and reading his poetry

there were many key events and people who were important during his life and i want

ed to try and capture all of them in my animation.

(be kind, rewind, science of sleep, peter whitehead and the sixties)

so i storyboarded his lifeline and decided to use stop motion, using drawings and collage.


stills from the different scenes in my animation.
