I have an extensive & unique experience as both an animator & also a tutor for the next generation.
Whether you see this as a future profession or just want a giggle trying it out, take my support & have a go at being an animator yourself!
Stop motion animation seems as popular as ever! I’m continually meeting people of all ages who are enchanted by the craft involved in breathing life into miniature puppets. So try it out for yourself! Animation has seen huge growth with universities churning out young eager animators every year. I’ve been utterly privileged to help support their careers & see new stop motion animators grow & flourish as they shape the future of our art form.
My workshops are run all over the world and are split into Masterclasses & Mentoring (for animators developing their skills), to Children’s Workshops based around playful exploration. I also give Corporate Events to create unique Team-building & Networking opportunites. Whoever wants to try their hand at stop motion, we’ll study professional animation & put it to practice with an emphasis on communication, imagination & having fun!
Take a look at some of my Workshop photos & videos for ideas, then drop me line. I’ll plan your session around who it’s aimed at plus any theme & required outcome of your choice!
Put on an event that’s completely different! Whether it’s for Team-building or Networking, see how animated movies are planned out & then it’s your turn! No prior experience needed, it’s a fun & highly creative way of getting your team interacting & expressing themselves!
Looking to hone your skills & enhance your stop motion showreel? We’ll study techniques used in a variety productions & explore them within your work. Focused on improving body language, performance & storytelling, this is tailor made to develop you into a more accomplished animator
Workshops for Children
Watching children create characters & tell stories is a joy – fascinating, surprising & hilarious! Given a theme & a ball of plasticine let them show you what wonderful imagination they have. A chance for them to take a break from watching cartoons & make them for themselves!
In October 2013 Ivana Bošnjak & myself traveled to the Croatian island of Rab to run an intensive stopmotion workshop. It was a week making puppets, animating mad characters & enjoying the beautiful island. A dozen students attended for an absolutely crazy & deeply satisfying time together!
