A morning animating spooky films and an afternoon adding scary soundtracks, for children aged 10-14. BAFTA winning animator Kevin Griffiths will introduce the various stages of ‘cut-out’ animation and guide children step-by-step through the process of making their very own animated film. Children will learn how to use a camera, laptop and software to create their own Halloween-themed animations. They will then get the chance to bring their films to life by experimenting with sound to create eerie atmospheres, ‘bumps in the night’ and give a voice to their ghostly characters.
The day will round off with a programme of specially selected spooky animated films, as well as a bonus screening of the completed animated productions of the day.
Screening progamme details coming soon.
