            Abstract

            This paper examines Grace, a computer-generated film created for the Grace Darling Museum, Northumberland, UK. Commissioned in 2019, the initial concept was to create an installation, which gives the museum’s visitors a new perspective on the story of Grace Darling’s life. In 1838, Grace Darling became one of the greatest female celebrities of the Victorian era. After rescuing survivors from the wreck of the SS Forfarshire, her quiet life as a lighthouse keeper’s daughter was changed forever, as she became an internationally celebrated heroine. She died just a few years later, aged twenty-six, from tuberculosis. Throughout this paper, the treatment and process behind Grace are explored. These include the 3D recreation of Grace Darling’s family home in Longstone Lighthouse, storytelling using museum and archival collections, and computer-generated filmmaking.
