Claymation holiday programme

Discover the process of producing animated movies, in the style of Wallace and Gromit. Plan an original story, create your own characters and craft your own movie using digital photography.

Claymation is a fun and very popular course run over 2 days during the school holidays. On the first day students will give some thought to the storyline of the animation and produce a storyboard which (in many cases) helps the student achieve what they set out to achieve. They will also create clay models on day one. Day two encompasses the animation, editing sound production and output.
