Stop Motion Animation

This course has already run but we occasionally offer similar classes if there is enough demand. Send your name and details to and we will notify you about similar courses in your area.


Make an animated film using stop motion. You will be using professional equipment to record your animation, edit the film and add sound. The animation will be made using card cut-outs similar to "South Park" and with plasticine which is similar to "Wallace and Gromit"

You will also explore how animation works, characters design, movement and how to add titles and effects to complete your film. Each student will have their own animation station and can make their own film, (although students often prefer to work in small groups).

Please bring a memory stick with you to take your films home on the day.
