Tutor: Cat Bruce
Venue: Wasps Studios Dalry
You will discover the basics of animation from its very beginnings, by using historical techniques to create simple hand-drawn animation loops.
Working with a range of drawing materials, we will begin by making Thaumatropes in order to get an idea of the fun and simplicity of traditional illusions. We will then look at some examples of animated loops on Zoetropes and come up with some ideas in order to create your own animated loops.
As well as being able to see your animations come to life in front of your eyes using the zoetrope, your loops can also be made into digital animation files for you to take away.
