    Join an experienced animator and cartoonist to create a unique short animated film using old school time lapse, stop frame and hyperlapse techniques.

    In this 1-day workshop, you’ll get to create an animation from start to finish. You’ll first design, draw and colour your own unique character on cardboard and then bring it to life using simple paper cut animation techniques. Learn how to script write, storyboard, character design, shoot scenes, then download to iMovie, add titles and output to YouTube.
