To celebrate 'DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition' we're presenting animation workshops covering development to post-production.

  • 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 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 first workshop, we will focus on the development phase. You will create your characters, your world and your script. You will develop a storyboard and design the look of your evnironment. Finally you will consider casting the roles and what sort of voice talent will be needed to bring your characters to life.

    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 allows time to build upon the ideas and skills learned in individual sessions.

    Information for the remaining sessions in this series to follow. Workshops will take place in July, August and September.

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