Easter ANIMATION Camp at Galway Film Centre

Easter Camp 2017 poster TO USE

Unlock your creativity and make your own animation!

We are pleased to announce the Easter Animation Camp at Galway Film Centre this April. Easter Animation Camp will run from April 10th to 13th. Camps take place from 10am and 3.30pm at Cluain Mhuire on the Wellpark Road with facilitators Denise McDonagh & Ian Canavan.

Animation is an exciting way to explore creative storytelling and visual imagery. Through the use of paper, drawing and clay you will learn to create your own mini universe. You will style and develop characters with the help of professional animators and then transform your creations into moving images and learn to animate with a iPad! Participants learn how to make their own animations, have fun and meet new friends in a safe and creative environment.

At the end on this 4 day workshop each participant will receive a DVD with their finished animation including the names of all participants on the credit list, ideal for portfolio inclusion as well as being just great fun.

The resulting animations will be submitted to the Galway Junior Film Fleadh and the Limerick Fresh Film Festival. The experience of seeing your creation on a big screen is extremely rewarding, encouraging and inspiring.

  1. Hi what age group is the camp aimed at ? And any cost ?
    Thanks Mary

    • Hi Mary,

      Thanks for getting in touch,

      The camp runs from 10am to 3.30pm each day and is suitable for children, both girls and boys, between the ages of 7yrs and 17yrs and the cost is €200 per child.

      We only take 10 participants on the course and there are 2 facilitators and this ensures that there is a high level of one-to-one activity and each participant is guided at their own level.

      The course begins with story-boarding and character creation with an emphasis on drawing and making. The participant can decide on what type of animation they want to develop – stop-motion, clay modelling or digital animation with iPad and online apps. All materials are provided.

      We cater for participants from 7 yrs to 17 and understand that each participant is at a different level of learning – the aim is to make it as fun and enjoyable for each person!


      I can forward on an application form if you need it,

      Best wishes
