Film & Animation Workshops

School workshops

Teaching animation reminds me why I love animation. Apart from being a lot of fun, animation can be a fantastic learning tool. I have ten years experience in teaching animation to a variety of age groups – from primary schools to Colleges – and I’ve seen first hand how animation can teach co-operation, organisation, innovation and creativity in both children and adults alike.

I can facilitate most timetables and curriculum’s and I’m willing to travel.  Please contact me to discuss your requirements and for a quote.

Team building with a difference

Tired of the usual ‘team-building’ malarkey? Animation can be a great team exercise, requiring imagination, strategy and co-operation. I’ll guide you through the stages of planning your animation: generating ideas, creating a storyboard, building your characters and then into production.  You can either generate something completely from scratch or work on a pre-conceived brief  ie: make a seasonal animated ‘greetings card’ for your clients! You’ll work as a team through every stage and together – quite literally – breathe life into clay!

Example rate – £500 for a full day based on 6 people, but please contact me to discuss your requirements.

So for a team building or educational exercise with a difference get in touch!
