MOVE IT!NOW FULL
Go wild in a changing world of animation!
There’s a whole lot more to Stop Motion Animation than just plasticine! Over this three day workshop you will get your hands dirty with real art material (plasticine too!!) exploring shapes, light, movement and sound to create your own magical worlds – limited only by your imagination!!!
Working in small teams you will create an original animated film with established local film artist Iona Fabian. Iona has been teaching animation for 15 years, and has worked extensively around the south giving young people the confidence to go wild with their imagination and create something truly different.
Over 3 days participants will develop skills in planning, scheduling, lighting, modelling, drawing, animating, sound recording, sound mixing and editing. You will be working in small groups using PC’s and MAC’s and high definition cameras at the Film Oxford Studios in Catherine Street.
All abilities welcome, no previous experience necessary.

- A brief history of Animation, and general introduction.
- Have a Go! We get stuck in with a simple demonstration and then it’s your turn.
- Try out various different techniques and styles so you get to see what’s possible and what suits you best.
- Having chosen a style and got a feel for how it all works get into groups and come up with a plan.
- Now get cracking! Sets to make, models to build, lighting to set up! And you’re off!
- Now it’s time to start putting it all together, changing speeds, special effects, adding titles and more. You are an editor now!
- Next is sound. Get creative with speech, sound FX and music.
- By the end of the day you’ll have it all wrapped up and ready to take home on DVD.
