Develop amazing animation ideas to build your own short film

Develop amazing animation techniques to build your own short, animated film from scratch.
You will have the opportunity to dive into different animation styles including stop motion with clay or card, or hand-drawn animation with professional light boxes.
Our animation workshops will take you through the process of creating each aspect of your story. You will learn how to plan with a storyboard, developing your storyline in a visual way. You will then create your own characters and sets from our variety of resources before your newly developed animation skills bring your characters to life! Sound effects can then be added to build the atmosphere of your world, to create an engaging and emotional story. Don’t forget to finish the project by naming your story and signing it with your name in the credits.

This workshop suitable for all skill levels and ensures a supportive and inclusive environment for all participants. However, we do recommend that if you are looking to book for an individual on the autism spectrum that you start with an Autism Friendly session where we can offer more support and you can get to know us in a more relaxed setting.

12 places available.

Suitable for ages 11 – 16

No experience required. All materials are provided by Signals.

Discounts available on request, call 01206 560255 or email for more info.

Parents / carers are welcome to stay for part or all of the workshop if they would like to.

As this workshop runs over lunchtime, please make sure your child has a drink and packed lunch.  Those attending workshops for ages 11+ are given free time for a lunch break, they may leave the building if they choose.  They do so at their own risk. If you would rather your child did not leave the premises, please let us know.

It was so much fun and I learnt lots
