A practical, engaging workshop during which participants will create short animated films around issues facing our planet, utilising natural materials. First the group will hunt down the best flora and fauna from the immediate environment, to illustrate a story. Then we will focus on creating beautiful sequences of animation to tell stories of a planet under siege.

The group will learn traditional filmmaking skills and animation techniques, and start to understand how ‘anything’ can be brought to life through animation. Perfect for those that love digital but don’t have enough contact with nature! Weather permitting, filming will take place outside so please come prepared.

My brother did another workshop before me and I saw his film and I was so jealous. I asked my mum – and here I am!” – DCA Workshop Participant
