The morning session will cover animation theory, the principles of animation (using examples of different animation techniques) and design and storyboarding for a short scene that participants will animate in the afternoon session using stop-motion animation. The final productions will be edited with sound added and uploaded to the Internet (Vimeo).
Participants should have some experience with drawing, and an interest in animation. Equipment and materials will be supplied.
