Imagine, Play, Shoot: Animation Techniques for Creativity

Participants will be introduced to the basics of stop motion animation using three different techniques, cut out, drawing and Claymation. You will be guided through the process: conceiving a story, planning, and storyboarding, designing characters, shooting, and editing (including adding sound).

The workshop will also look at the different hardware that can be used for animation; tablet, computer, cameras, accessories (tripod, lights), and software (Zu 3D, Stop Motion Studio) and at some samples of stop motion animation made by children.

Participants will receive a package of materials in the post before the workshop.

Some basic tools will also be needed: scissors, pencil / coloured pencils / markers. Tape and smart phone.

A box such as a shoe box would be useful but not essential, a tripod or two unopened tins to help hold the smart phone into position.

Participants will need to download the free version of the Stop Motion Studio App.

Please note, when booking your place you will be asked to provide an address to which the materials package can be posted too.
