Nanna, A Ghost Story Story by Ben Tombs Direction and Shadow Puppetry by Theresa O'Connor Video Production and Sound Design by Tom McKeand
During October we called upon the community of Moonee Valley City to share their ghost stories with us. From the multitude of spooktacular stories we received, one really stood out! The story of Nanna by Ben Tombs, was formed into a shadow puppetry, haunted house film for Halloween.
We hope you enjoy!
SPOOKY (MOONEE) VALLEY CALL OUT FOR HALLOWEEN TALES: Have you got a Halloween tale to tell? Maybe there’s a skeleton living in your cupboard that only comes out at night, or you’ve seen a ghost trying to play hopscotch in the laneway? Perhaps you’ve seen a thousand bats fly out of the clock face at the Clocktower Centre, or heard scary sounds coming from the haunted house in your neighbourhood? We’re calling for scary stories from across Moonee Valley, and we want to hear from you!
Award winning Salt and Poppet Theatre will adapt the winning spooky story into a short shadow puppet film for Halloween 2020. Puppetry artist Theresa O’Connor will adapt your frightening story and illustrations into shadow form that come alive on screen and sound artist Tom McKeand will design the deadly soundtrack to your tale.
The finished spooky story will premiere on this webpage and on the Clocktower Centre website and their social media channels!
So, write us a scary story, draw a chilling picture and for bonus points, include the mystery object of a timepiece in your entry.
