Lights, camera, action! Students will work in pairs to create their own short stop-motion film using HUE Animation software and webcams! Our 8 week course will go into depth about different aspects of creating a successful stop-motion animation. We will focus on characters, sound, and movie sets as part of this mini-animation school. After the course, the students' movies can be emailed home. No previous experience necessary.

Q. What do I need to bring?
A. Just yourself, and an idea of what you might like to make: a story, a character or just an image! You don’t need any experience of film making.
Q. Can I book on just one session?
A. No. This is an 8-week course over which participants will learn all the skills to make an animated movie. You don’t need to attend every session, but the course fee is for the whole 8-week course.
