Artists/film makers Amanda Lorens and Mae Voogd ran Stop Motion animation workshops with a group of young people at Helston Community College and created a series of short animations.
Each young person used our given theme of ‘what does a river see?’ to interpret as their own. The theme was inspired by a poem the students had been studying.
Each young person created their individual animations using their own drawings and story ideas. They all produced storyboards for their animations that helped them create a narrative from our given starting point and allow them to really shape how they wanted their films to look and make it their own.
As part of the project the young people learnt how to animate, how to story board and create 2D articulated silhouette paper puppets, which were specifically designed to be animated under camera.
A lot of fun was had by all.
