Explore animation and sound in this fun workshop for children aged 8-16. Workshop participants will get the opportunity to explore sound for the moving image by creating their own compositions.
Using hand crank music boxes participants will create melodies by punching holes in blank music sheets, which will then feed through a music box and be recorded to create the soundtracks for our short films. As for the animation, we will experiment with a variety of traditional animation techniques, including zoetrope, rostrum plan, sand on glass, cut out, object and hand-drawn, creating short sequences and animated loops.
By the end of the workshop, each participant will have created and produced their very own animated short!
