Easter Bobypoppin' Pixilation Animation Workshops

Our Bodypoppin’ Pixilation Animation workshops consisted of 3 half day workshops over the spring holidays. They were aimed at 9-14 year olds. The participants were introduced to the work of Norman Mclaren and the technique of ‘pixilation’. This was complemented by combining by learning about the skill of body popping with Hip Hop artist MC. The workshops used iPads and a free app, ‘Animate It!’ (although there are lots of others) for the filming and animation. Participants learned exciting dance movement techniques and filmed animations using each other as the subject. The workshops started off in Belmont Filmhouse with an introduction to Animation, moved to Citymoves for the dance and filming action, returning to Belmont Filmhouse to view work made.
