            Abstract

            The National Centre for Computer Animation at Bournemouth University is developing a digital collection of historical assets arising from 30 years of pioneering work. These rare assets of late 20th and early 21st century animation include high quality digital and hardcopy storyboards, animatics and completely rendered scenes. This unique collection will be presented publicly at an exhibition at Poole Museum entitled ‘Once Upon A Time in Animation’. This paper will describe the creation of the archive and collection as well as the curatorial strategy of making it accessible to the public. What are the most relevant artefacts of 30 years of Animation at this world leading institution? What are the best strategies in making Animation accessible to future talents? How can we strengthen the role of the South West of England as one of the major hubs in Animation, VFX and the Creative Industries?
