Leanne and Eloise - Dyslexia is a Superpower

Directed and Animated by Katherine Sugrue - Bristol School of Animation, UWE Bristol - May 2016.

An aunt and her niece compare their widely different experiences of having dyslexia.

Katherine Sugrue, “I was drawn to Leanne and especially Eloise's overwhelmingly positive attitude, especially since I myself am on the autistic spectrum and feel I could learn a lot from them. I animated the conversation with highlighter pens because I enjoy the line variation they produce, plus I felt that re-appropriating an instrument of academic note-taking - for artistic purposes - was a fitting metaphor for Eloise’s story.”
