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:
Day 1: Sand Animation!
The animation is created frame by frame by painting with sand, creating a textural and atmospheric effect.
Day 2: Storyboarding and Pre-Production!
During this workshop we work with the students to create a story, as well design and build characters for stopmotion animation
Day 3: Stopmotion Animation!
Using the characters and backgrounds from the Pre-Production workshop, the students create their own short stopmotion film.
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!
PHOTOS COMING SOON!
We’ll be putting up the results from the stopmotion workshops once they’re all edited together!
In the meantime if you have a group that would like to get involved in one of our workshops you can get in touch with us here:
