Margate: Dreamland Trust releases animated film of memories of Dreamland

By Angela Cole

Memories are made of this...

The Dreamland Trust has launched an animated film using archive images bringing to life people's memories of the attraction in Margate.

My Dreamland brings the images to life with animation, combined with stories from members of the public talking about their memories of visiting and working there.

The film was produced by Sprankenstein Studios in Margate and uses modern technology and some of the historic images from the Dreamland Trust’s collections.

East Kent College in Broadstairs also worked with the trust and Sprankenstein Studios on the audio. The college then produced a second film My Dreamland, behind the scenes showing how the film was made, with additional material.

Bernie Morgan, from the trust, said: "This film was a new and very different project for the trust. It uses the historical aspect of Dreamland in a way that makes it both current and exciting. The film has also given us the opportunity of working with local business, education providers and the community. I hope that the public will enjoy watching both films."

The Dreamland Trust is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and works to preserve and promote the heritage of Dreamland.
