Boscombe Bound

Created within and inspired by lockdown in the seaside suburb of Boscombe, Dorset, the animated short 'Boscombe Bound' shares voices of the community, evoking the unique sense of this location and time.

An underrepresented, often negatively regarded suburb of Bournemouth, the film's aim was to engage with and shine a light on the community of Boscombe, whilst sharing stories that will resonate across the globe.

Director Statement

Boscombe has a colourful and close-knit community, but is an area so often associated with and tarnished with negative media. My concept was to produce a short animation inspired by (and against the soundtrack of) the voices and stories of those living in the area, working with the community to learn about the experiences that they have had through lockdown. I hoped to capture diverse yet optimistic perspectives that could offer a feeling of support, reassurance and inspiration to others through this time and to reflect upon in future. I loved discovering more about my locality through this project - the research and conversations certainly helped me through this strange time!
