Workshop Outline 

Animation: full of life, action, or spirit; lively; vigorous.

Animation is all around us, from films at the cinema, your favourite music video to that gif doing the rounds on Instagram. The variety of styles and techniques is vast. Join us for a journey of discovery and discussion surrounding the ever changing landscape of animated style and how new technology and traditional craft can be integrated.

This will be followed by a practical workshop covering the technical aspects of ‘squash and stretch’ and ‘Anticipation, Action, Reaction’.
