To celebrate DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition, we are excited to present an extended animation workshop series. You will learn the skills and techniques to create beautiful animation with a strong story and believable characters in intriguing worlds.
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.
In this final work shop you will edit all your animations into a complete film. Following your original storyboard, you will edit together the individual scene of your story. Music, narration, voice-over and sound effects are all techniques you may choose to use in your final edit. Finally you will render your films and add a quick colour grade to the production. This final element of post production is the difference between a good film and a great film. We will also briefly discuss the next steps to take with your film, so that a wide audience can access it. Where are the best places to have your film seen, which competitions are open to animations?
By end of this workshop you will have completed an intensive series of workshops on the art of animation. You will have developed or refined a large skill set that can be applied to all manner of digital production, and will be of great assistance to your development as a creative artist.
The Intermix program is for young people aged 15-20.
This is a free event running from 10am to 5pm.
