Signal Starters Holiday Animation Workshops

Signal Starters Holiday Animation Workshops

AWARD WINNING SIGNAL FILM & MEDIA’S BBC CHILDREN IN NEED FUNDED PROJECT SIGNAL STARTERS AT IS BACK!

We are looking for 8-11 year olds who would love the opportunity to work with film industry professionals and make their own animation film in the Christmas holidays.

Participants will work on story creating, model-making, set design and stop motion animation using techniques and equipment found in the professional animation industry.  With filmmakers and Signal Staff the young animators will have the opportunity to communicate creative ideas, develop new digital skills and form new friendships.

Karen Bird has ran previous Signal Starter workshops which have gone on to be recognised internationally. The animated short film ‘The Day Before Christmas’ made by our Signal Starters film club last December with Karen, was selected for screening at the 1st Annual Palm Springs International Animation Festival from 9th – 11th November, 2017!

The four days of FREE workshops will be running from Wed 20th until Sat 23rd December, 10.30am until 3pm, with lunch and refreshments included. With staff on hand for pastoral care and the participants will be working towards an Arts Award qualification.

For 8 – 11 year olds, no previous experience necessary. To download the registration form to apply go here.
