A regular meeting place for anyone interested in animation. We will meet regularly, 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month (school holidays permitting) and share our passion for anything animated. Stop-motion or digital, 2D or 3D, poignant or silly.
We will set up a basic animation stand and explore animation software. We will build 2D and 3D actors. We will watch our favourite videos, make animated experiments and discover more about the art of making the inanimate come to life.
If you have a story or an idea for a film, animation may be the ideal medium. Want to refresh your website with an animated GIF? Bring your ideas and we’ll see if they can be realised.
Run by Peter Lang, an animator, who over the last 40 odd (“most odd”) years has written, designed and animated films for children’s TV (BBC, ITV and Channel 4), starting from “Vision On” via “Ludwig”, “Pigeon Street”, “Sesame Street”, “Rub a Dub Dub”, “Doris”, “Rosie and Jim”, “Bonny, Banana and Mo”, “Tronji” and “DipDap” to literally thousands of educational shorts, music videos and commercials.
Come and join in. This is our “Animation Club!”
It is ok to turn up and pay on the day for this event.
Please note there is no Thursday evening animation club in August.
