Introductory workshop 3 22nd July 2008

In the previous post you can see a glimpse of George and Douglas taking part in our third workshop. This post will tell you a little more about what happened. George and Douglas, like the groups before, began by working on a live drawing but what the activity revealed was that they were both interested in animation and that their drawings suggested characters that might have a story to tell. With this discovered we didn’t dwell on the drawing long and eagerly set about discussing what an animation could be made from.

Everyone joined in experimenting with the materials at hand to create environments, imagery and animation devices like speech bubbles. The experimenting helped George and Douglas decide where they wanted their animation to go and how they wanted it to develop.

As you can see from the documentation George and Douglas tested many things before deciding upon their final animation film. It goes without saying that we are all looking forward to what is to come in the next workshop.

At the end of the workshop Douglas and George took part in the screen printing activity completing the set of three city scape lines. We were all exhausted but there were smiles all around.

Enjoy the animations and pictures.
