Animation course

Get a taste of what it’s like to bring char­ac­ters to life. Try out stop motion and make your own short film. Online course for 11 – 16 year olds.

About the course
11-16 and interested in animation? Are you already starting to make your own animations and would like to work with a professional filmmaker to learn more tips and improve your work? This course will give you a chance to try out different stop motion animation techniques, learn how animations are made and make your own short film.

We will be working through the Bronze Arts Award, a great Level 1 qualification which everyone will achieve by the end of the course. At the end of term we will have an online showcase of the animation you have produced alongside the work from the two other Creative Courses.

How does it work?
Every Tuesday the group will log on to Zoom (a video call service) so we can go through a 'how to' guide of the next steps and also see what everyone has done over the last few days. Then on Wednesday afternoon we will arrange a time to have an individual catch up with you so if you need specific help or have any questions about what to do we can go over it 1:1 with you.

As this is an online course we will give you as much support as we can over Zoom but it's important that you are happy and able to do some of the work on your own at home. You will need to be able to access Zoom via a computer/tablet/mobile phone, we will help you get set up with this before the course starts.

WHEN: 28th April - 7th July
Group session - 4-4.30pm every Tuesday
Individual catch up - prearranged slot on Wednesday afternoons

This course is for 11-16 year olds in the Bristol area.
