Stop Motion Animation Festive Card Workshop
Saturday 26 November, 2 – 4pm
In this fantastic new workshop, Nigel Smith and his team from StopMo Studios will help attendees make their very own stop motion festive card. Stop motion animation is a great way to bring objects to life — and to learn the basics of filmmaking.
Using your own smart phone, the team will guide you through downloading and using a free phone app and will provide everything you need to create landscapes, characters and personalised messages for your very own digital festive card to share!
With this workshop, two (or more) minds are better than one so to encourage collaboration the tickets are ‘family’ tickets for 2-4 people. Define ‘family’ as you wish - could be you and a friend, or bring the kids along to this collaborative workshop. (Please note - you are purchasing your ticket for you and 1, 2 or 3 other people who you will work with during the workshop.) Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult and we recommend that this workshop is suitable for children aged 10+
Excitingly, as part of our celebration of festive film making, on the evening of 26 November Richard Edmunds, artistic director at Aardman Studios, will be delivering his Behind the Lens talk at Kingshill House. A must for all budding animators and we are including one free ticket to the talk with each ‘family workshop’ ticket purchased.
Tickets £60 (workshop entry for up to 4 people and 1 free ticket for the Behind the Lens talk).
You can make a wonderful Christmas animation like this one and send it to friends and family as your Christmas card this year!
From their studio in Eastville in Bristol, StopMo Studios create craft stop motion films about a variety of topics like health and sustainability.
StopMo Studios is a community interest company that started out by taking animation workshops into health and hospital settings - working predominantly with stroke patients and people with dementia. They have now expanded and give workshops in many different settings with budding animators to the not-so-sure smart phone users!
