This workshop is for those new to animation and is accessible to all ages and all abilities who want to learn the fundamentals of drawn animation.
Students will collaborate with each other, using different materials and techniques to create an exciting piece of work. At the end of the In Motion, the piece of work created in this workshop will be handed to The Belmont cinema, where it will be used as an pre-film-screening anti-mobile phone advert.
Students will be able to work with traditional animation equipment and with computer programs for the editing and composing. They will draw their own characters, experiment with the materials and the equipment to make their own animated work.
The animation tutor, Thomas Hicks has taught many animation workshops in England and in Scotland and has worked with ‘Puppet Animation Scotland’ in Edinburgh and on the Isle of Skye making short animated films with students. Thomas aims to inspire and teach young people about animation, giving them the skills they need to make their own drawn animation films.
