Discover the magic behind the screen! This special school holiday workshop will teach participants stop motion techniques to make their own short animated films.
Participants will experiment with ways to create illusions of continuous movement, to show dialogue coming from moving mouthparts and will employ visual effects such as inserting backgrounds using a green screen.
Participants will collaborate with a partner to produce at least one short film, a copy of which they will be able to bring home with them.
The workshop will be generously resourced with LEGO bricks and elements suitable for designing sets, characters and props. If participants wish to bring any LEGO scenery and/or minifigures to feature in their animations they may do so at their own risk.
Please pack a big lunch and water bottle for the day, as well as a USB drive with at least 1GB of space so digital movie files can be taken home.
Suitable for 6-12 year olds.
