A fantastic opportunity to learn everything you need to know about making an animated film using traditional techniques. Working in small groups, you will come up with your own stories and characters and learn how to make them move under the camera. You will be involved in all stages of the production of your film which will include: drawing storyboards; creating artwork; operating cameras and recording soundtracks.

Our animation projects are designed specifically to help students succeed in the creation of high quality animation work. These fun, practical sessions are led by trusted animators with the support of volunteers interested in developing their skills in the creative industries. All our members of staff and volunteers are CRB checked. Each workshop will have a maximum of 12 participants.

• Understand how to apply realistic movement to an animated character
• Be able to make backgrounds for your animations
