This course is for potential animators in School Years 8-11 (or equivalent if home-schooled) who want to have fun, see their characters come to life and explore how cartoons are made. The course gives students an insight into the world of animation, focusing on hand drawn animation with the chance to do cutout and stop motion.

Animators will also look at storyboarding and character design and there will be opportunities to learn about movement and timing. Industry-standard equipment will be available for Animators to try out the key principles of animation.

The only limit will be the Animator’s imagination.
