Two young girls are wearing masks on their head and using a movie camera. A person on the left hand side gives them direction.

This leading Scottish-based animation company visits Cockermouth to present two exciting animation workshops.


The Fastest Draw:

A lively animation workshop that demonstrates how cool 2D animation can be created even (if you believe) your drawing skills are limited! This workshop is for messy artists and cartoon fanatics alike! The group will learn traditional sequence drawn animation skills, working on paper with animation light boxes.

Final film footage (approved by participants) will be made available online.


Looping Pixelation:

Pixelation is animation created using real people as puppets. A practical, one-day workshop, creating short animation films that mix traditional stop-frame animation, time-lapse, looping and pixilation.

Working with experts in the field, participants will brainstorm their microfilm ideas, work on the fundamentals of animation. They will then get physical creating dynamic pixilated sequences and learn how to combine different types of footage together to create a seamless piece.

Final films (approved by participants) will be made available online.
