WHAT HAPPENS IN THE WORKSHOP

In this workshop, the group will devise a story and work out the shots that they will need to create. Participants will draw and colour characters, cut them out and transform them into puppets for animation. They’ll then create backgrounds and scenery and bring their characters to life in short, fun animations.

This workshop looks at the basic principles of animation and is a great introduction for younger, first time animators. It builds on skills that the group feel comfortable with, such as drawing, colouring and storytelling, and it introduces key animation concepts such as timing and movement.
