Tutor: Cat Bruce

Venue: The Safari Lounge

On this weekly course, you will be introduced to the magical world of animation, and learn the basics of animated film making. 


With your choice of drawing materials, you will create a series of animated 12 frame loops which will be brought to life using traditional apparatus, and ultimately you will record your animation digitally.   The animation you create can be as abstract, expressive, or precise and technical as you like. 

Beginning by making a simple storyboard, then designing and making your animated loops, along the way you will record your own sound effects, and by the end of the four weeks, you will have a short finished film.  

You will need a laptop, ideally with free editing software Davinci Resolve installed, minimum system requirements are: 


CPU                             Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen 7 

RAM                            16GB 

GPU                             4GB VRAM 

Media Storage            SSD or RAID 


If your laptop does not have these requirements, then any free editing software such as Windows Movie Maker or iMovie will suffice. The film projects can potentially take up a large amount of space, but we can work around this if it becomes an issue. Please also bring a USB stick with at least 2GB of free space. 

Please drop us a line if you have any questions.
