In this two day hands-on workshop you will use stop motion animation techniques to design, plan and shoot a short film using your favourite Lego from home.
Under the supervision of our professional animation and filmmaking tutors you will create a set for your very own story and bring your characters to life using visual and sound effects. The final films will be uploaded to our Youtube account after the workshop for you to share with your family and friends!
Please bring with you any Lego you have from home, including mini figures. Only limited lego will be provided, such as base plates and standard bricks. We also ask that attendees bring a packed lunch. Suitable for those aged 8-13 years.
