Acting & Character Movement for Animators

Date: Saturday 7th October 2017

Time: 10:00 - 16:00 (1 hour lunch break - lunch not provided)

An introduction to Laban Movement Analysis (the analysis of character in terms of body, effort, space and shape) this can be used for human and creature animation work. Training the eye to acutely observe and then to practically take on board a range of physical qualities, so as to develop characters and create.

This workshop will encourage an understanding of character from the outside - in and the power of physicality in storytelling. We shall look at big character types, but also understand subtle postural and gestural performance choices too. The class will be a combination of theory, practice, games/exercises, play and group work. Fun, yet informative. Please wear comfortable clothes to move in.

This workshop will be delivered by Sarah Perry (Shapes in Motion).
