St Kilian’s Deutsche Schule Animation Week!

This week at Paper Panther HQ we’re entertaining a transition year group from St Kilian’s Deutsche Schule.
The Introduction to Animation course is running all week at A4 Sounds Studios for 2 hours per day:

The animation is created frame by frame by painting with sand, creating a textural and atmospheric effect.

Day 2: Storyboarding and Pre-Production!

Using the characters and backgrounds from the Pre-Production workshop, the students create their own short stopmotion film.

Day 4: Animorphs!

In this class we explore hand-drawn animation, with the students working together to transform from one drawing to the next. You can see the end result above!

Day 5: Pixilation!

For this class we’ll be animating real objects and people to create a surreal short film!

We’ll be putting up the results from the stopmotion workshops once they’re all edited together!
