This animation is part of History on Your Doorstep, an East Sussex Record Office project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. As part of the project we worked with volunteers, local residents and schools to explore, collect and record the history of Moulsecoomb and the surrounding neighbourhoods. The film is the result of the collaboration with the community and brings to life the memories and experiences of living in the area, combining local history collections found at The Keep with residents’ oral history and reminiscences.
This video has subtitles.

The animation was also screened at Together Film Festival.

In addition, a number of time capsules were created to house the creative interpretations of the oral histories and objects collected. These included ‘talking pop-up cards’ as seen in the video above.
