New app tells animated stories about the River Taff

Taff Tales is a fun app using humorous animations created by children now available on the App Store. Watch the entertaining short animations made by young people to tell the story of the development of the communities along the River Taff in an innovative way using the fluid medium of sand and silhouettes combined with timelapse video.

The app was developed working with young people in communities in Merthyr, Senghenydd and Riverside, Cardiff that are interwoven into an interactive app following the ongoing story of the river from the development of the industry in Merthyr based on the childhood reminiscences of residents who grew up along the river.
