Eventbrite - Young Animators Studio: 8-week course (ages 8-12)

Lights, camera, action! Students will work in pairs to create their own short stop-motion film using HUE Animation software and webcams. Our 8-week course will go into depth about different aspects of creating a successful stop-motion animation. We will focus on characters, sound, and movie sets as part of this mini-animation school.

After the workshop, students’ movies can be emailed home. Students will take home a learning journal and in the final week will be presented with a Certificate of Completion detailing their learning outcomes.

Who’s it for?
Young people aged 8-12. No previous experience is necessary.

When is it?
After school on Mondays, 4pm-5.30pm, in 2 blocks of 4 weeks throughout Spring term.

Q. What do I need to bring?
A. Just yourself, and an idea of what you might like to make: a story, a character or just an image. You don’t need any experience of film making.

Q. Can I book on just one session?
A. No. This is an 8-week course over which participants will learn all the skills to make an animated movie. You don’t need to attend every session, but the course fee is for the whole 8-week course.
