This Specialist course will offer an insight into Stop-motion animation, enabling you to create and screen your own short animation from home.

This course will take place online, and you will be sent materials and kit to work on an animation project at home. This will then be shot on your phone.

Course content includes technical animation workshops and masterclasses focusing on how to make inanimate objects look alive and will also offer an understanding of career routes into the industry. You will be supported to create your own short animation, which will be shown at a virtual showcase with attendees from Aardman Animations.
