SHREDDY OR NOT. . . Millie Gray's Project, involving shredded paper

STUDENTS at Dumfries and Galloway College are being praised for creating animations to raise awareness about mental health issues.

Cheyanne Arkless, Aaron Pearson, Millie Gray and Daniel Nicholson are the HNC visual communication students who created the series.

HOARDING AWARENESS. . . Daniel Nicholson’s project, with a more cartoonish style

Their animations focus on highlighting issues such as self-neglect and hoarding, as well as the dangers of such habits.

During the project, the students were tasked with storyboarding 30 second animations before creating said features.

It was a valuable opportunity for them to learn about working with deadlines, reporting, presenting and working with clients.

SELF-DESTRUCTION IN MOTION. . . Cheyanne Arkless’ project, utilising stop motion

Each animation will be uploaded to the Dumfries and Galloway Public Protection Partnership (DGPPP) website, which provides information and support to vulnerable people on issues including violence against women and girls, child protection, and adult support and protection.

Principal Joanna Campbell said: “Our HNC students have done an excellent job in fulfilling this challenging live brief and should be proud of themselves.

MENTAL HEALTH EDUCATION. . . Aaron Pearson’s project, informative and artistic

“They have shown creativity, dedication, and drive in fully completing this project and I’m sure it will set them up for their future careers.

“I would also like to thank our valued partners at DGPPP for their invaluable role in providing this opportunity to our students.”
