Celebrate Easter with some animated fun! We’re back again to make films featuring the Easter bunny, crazy chicks and plenty of chocolate themed animation.

3D Animation in 2D

Friday 14 April, 1.40pm-3.50pm (130 mins) / £15 
Animate in plasticine but with a twist. As plasticine creatures sometimes fall over (lots!,) we’ll turn the camera around and film them from above. Create flat plasticine critters that can easily defy gravity and find great ways to create special effects using plasticine.
