14 – Life on the Home Front
14 is a series of creative short films by Junction 15 in response to the poems of former Staffordshire’s Poet Laureate Tom Wyre on the theme of life on the Home Front in WWI.
This interactive resource is currently on tour to community venues & libraries across Staffordshire and is currently at Stafford Library until 9th January 2018.

The collection of poems and short films is a combination of live action, archive footage and superb animation filmed by Emmy Award winners Junction 15 with students from the BA(Hons) Animation and BA(Hons) Stop Motion Animation and Puppet Making course at Staffordshire University.
The creations of Tom Wyre weave their message through both the home and battle fronts of the First World War. Centred around the events of countries in turmoil and family life inspired by the Staffordshire village of Salt.
