TeenTech Innovation Live/OCR: Animation Masterclass 2 (Production Part 1)

21st June 2023 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am BST

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Today we’ll start creating our animations, and we’ll be getting some advice from experts. Join us for a practical masterclass session where we’ll be showcasing the free tools you can use to create an animation of your own using stop-motion and 2D vector-based techniques. You can ask us questions, live, and we’ll help you get ready to film your very own Animation! We’ll also be speaking to Dave Brain (Animator and Visual Effects Artist), the son of Terry Brain who worked on Wallace and Grommit, Chicken Run, Creature Comforts, The Trap Door and more. With tutorials from Mike Andreoli (Concept Artist at Platinum Films).

Please Note: This session is part of a four-part programme. Please register for all the sessions, if you can.

If the timings don’t work for your school, or if you can’t join the sessions live, don’t worry! All sessions will be available for playback until the end of the course and you can even send us questions beforehand for our experts to answer.

Animation Masterclasses Supported by OCR

Join us for a special programme of free animation activities, designed to support students (and their teachers) enrolled in their Cambridge National iMedia qualification, and give younger students a taste of the course content. We’ll be featuring industry experts from film, television and gaming, and spotlighting pre-production, production and post-production skills.

We encourage you to sign-up your students for all of the events in the series, as they are designed as a complete course – from post-production, through production, and finishing up with post-production, helping them create their own animations.
