Stop Motion Animation Workshops

The Communicate Project provides short and long workshops focusing on the creation of short films using Stop Motion Animation techniques. The workshops cater for children, young people and adults. Please contact us if you are interested in booking a workshop or want to know more about them.

Below we have included some pictures and videos of one of our long Stop Motion Animation Summer Workshops for children, which we ran in collaboration with SOAP (Oxford) during August 2012, and of one of our short Stop Motion Animation Workshops for young people, which we ran for d’Overbroecks College, Oxford, in August 2013 and 2014.

The long workshop ran for 12 hours over three days. During the first day children designed their stories, characters and sets. On the second day they created their characters -made with a wire armature covered in plasticine, and painted their sets. On the third day, they shot their movies! Children used a computer program to take pictures and edit them to create a short clip that they were able to take home at the end of the workshop to share with family and friends.

The workshop was very successful and the children created some truly awesome movies. Here are some pics of the long and short workshops, and a short video of the long workshop:
