SPRING SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAMME 2017

OCTOBER 2nd - 6th & 9th - 13th
Our 2 week school holiday programme will give you hands on experience with creating a short stop frame (stop motion) animation and cable controlled character puppets. Once we have created our projects we will create a short video showing the final result and a short bit on how we did it all. This is a great way to start your path on making your own films.
