Animation brings together lots of different aspects of other Upward Mobility workshops. While providing an achievable outlet for creativity and the exploration of emotional and situation based ideas, the workshop provides an extensive skill base for students.

Who is it for?
Anyone interested in camera work, modelling and story processes. An excellent combination of art and film-making.
A typical session:
A typical project will involve the entire class in a variety of activities. Individual projects may also be undertaken alongside group work.
Aspects of animation covered include story and character design. The design is realised using physical modelling, such as clay or papier-mâché. Students can then create a world in which stop motion figures interact with each other or human actors. Each cell is filmed, before being edited.
What will we learn?
Students will be given the opportunity to develop the technical skills of art creation, camera design, editing and film language.
