  • In the second instalment of our extended animation workshop series we take a look at pre production.

    You will build and rig the characters you conceived in the first stage of the animation challenge. Depending on the type of animation, this may be rigging characters out of clay, or out of card; the principles remain the same. You will also build your sets and dress them according to the production design you have conceived with the team. 

    You may also need to create costumes and props for your world; all this is part of the pre production phase. At the end of this session you will be ready to begin the animating process.

    Led by a professional animator, over five months and five workshops we are following the DreamWorks Animation pipeline, to create a short animated film. Throughout the five workshops you will develop one story, building your technical skills and conceptual capabilities as you go. The pipeline begins with the development phase, becomes pre- production, production and finally post-production.

    This is a wonderful opportunity to learn and develop the art of animation with other young people and professional animators. Using cutting edge software and cameras to create a polished and impressive final product. The extended nature of this workshop series allows time to build upon the ideas and skills learned in individual sessions.

    The Intermix program is for young people aged 15-20.
