“Gilbert’s War”

Gary Myers, digital producer at Isle of Man Newspapers, is working on an animated film that will tell the story of his grandfather, who fought with the Leeds Rifles and was in the Battle of Cambrai. Myers released the trailer of the 20-minute film on 11/11 and hopes to have the film completed in time for the centenary.

Here’s a link to an article about him: http://www.iomtoday.co.im/news/isle-of-man-news/animator-to-release-ww1-film-gilbert-s-war-1-5113781

This is a blog following Myers’ work on the film: http://www.gilbertswar.blogspot.com/

And here’s the trailer: https://vimeo.com/53223751

This is a really exciting project to follow. I’m eager to watch how it progresses and see the finished result.
