A two-day intensive short course, designed with animation students and their tutors in mind.
The two day bespoke course immerses students in the most pertinent aspects of current animation production, with a series of masterclasses, workshops and seminars run by experienced Aardman professionals in their studios in Bristol UK.
Examples of sessions offered include practical lighting demonstrations, interactive storytelling workshops and character animation masterclasses.
A tour of the feature film studio and its modelmaking department and a Morph modelmaking workshop can also often be included, shooting schedule permitting.
Each Insight Course can be tailored to the individual college’s needs. It can cover both CGI and Stop Frame animation or can be adapted to concentrate on either one.
The length of the course can be extended to up to five days, with a focus on a particular area of interest if necessary. For example a three day modelmaking course can be included, in which students can make their own model under the guidance of an experienced Aardman modelmaker.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Small groups of students and their lecturers wishing to gain an insight into current industry practice and focus on particular aspects in more depth if required.
Each course is arranged in collaboration with educational establishments from around the world and tailored to their needs. Please contact the Academy for more details.
