Animation Workshops 2018

This year we are running two sets of animation workshops. At the beginning of June we ran a Stop Motion Puppet Making animation workshop with older children (ages 11 – 17 years). This was a full day event included making the puppets from scratch then doing the animation. The efforts were fantastic and the final work is available via the vimeo video below. Thanks again to Jim from Animation Jam for all of this efforts on the day.

After the summer

Balerno Village Screen in association with Animation Jam is offering a programme of animation workshops on Saturday 25th August and Saturday 1st September.

The following sessions will be running at the discounted cost of £6 per participant.

You can also visit our 2017 animation page to see the fabulous animations created last year.

DAY 1 – Sat 25th Aug 2018

Cartoon Mania
10.30am to 12.40 (130 mins)

Come to Animation Jam’s cartoon animation workshop to build your own 2d paper creatures and bring them to life in a cartoon! You could make anything from aliens, robot monsters or super heroes; your imagination is the only limit! All your films are put online too.

Online booking and payment via Eventbrite. 

This workshop is suitable for ages 7-12 years

Plasticine Creature animation
1.50pm to 4pm (130 mins)

Animation Jam presents a fun packed introduction to the world of 3D animation. Make your own plasticine characters and bring them to life in your own animated film. Team up with other creatures to see what crazy stories come up, and watch your films online. Weird animals, comical super heroes, talking fruit; the only limit is your imagination! This workshop is suitable for ages 7-12 years

Online booking and payment via Eventbrite. 

Day 2 – sat 1st sept 2018

3D Animation in 2D 
10.30am to 12.40 (130 mins)

Animate in plasticine but with a twist. As plasticine creatures sometimes fall over (lots!) we’ll turn the camera around and film them from above. Join others and make flat plasticine critters that can easily defy gravity and find great ways to do special effects with plasticine. This workshop is suitable for ages 7-12 years.

Online booking and payment via Eventbrite.       

Toys  Alive Animation
1.50pm to 4pm (130 mins) 

Whether it’s a toy robot firing lasers, cars racing with Lego or a furry cat drinking some milk, we’ll help you bring your own toys to life with animation. Animation Jam will give you extra bits and show you how to make quick special effects on your films. Bring along a small-ish toy (like 5-15cm) you want to animate or choose from random ones we’ll provide. It’s best if they can stand up by themselves too! This workshop is suitable for ages 7-12 years.

Online booking and payment via Eventbrite.
