  • Learn how to create an awe inspiring animation through a professional three-stage production process. First, develop your story in groups by brainstorming, scripting and storyboarding your ideas through a collaborative process. Next, discover the technical side of stop-motion animation by learning how to create amazing characters from clay. Finally, use cameras and software to build a short animated film.

    Give your characters a voice by recording dialogue in our sound-booth and build their world using music and sound-effects. This two-day workshop has kids creating an advanced animation using the wonderful technique of Claymation.

    Used to create films such the Wallace and Gromit series, Mary and Max (2009) and Pingu, Claymation is a fun and popular animation technique involving numerous photographs of clay characters stitched together to form a short story.

    Cost includes a USB flash drive containing your finished film.

    Tickets must be purchased in advance. In the event of cancellation, ticket holders are notified directly and a full refund is provided. Workshop runs each day from 10am – 4pm.
