Unlock your creativity and make your own animation!

Galway Film Centre are pleased to announce a second Summer Animation Camp at Galway Film Centre this July. Summer Animation Camp Week #2 will run from Monday July 24th to Friday 28th from 10am and 3.30pm at Cluain Mhuire on the Wellpark Road with facilitators Clare Carroll and Sarah Walsh.

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.

The course begins with a fun overview of all the styles of animation and participants can start to story-board and create characters with an emphasis on drawing and making. The participants can then decide on what type of animation they want to develop; stop-motion, claymation or digital animation with iPad and online apps.

Following the camp the animations are submitted to the Galway Junior Film Fleadh and the Limerick Fresh Film Festival and the experience of seeing your creation on a big screen, during the coming months, is extremely rewarding, encouraging and inspiring.

The camp is suitable for children and young adults, both boys & girls, from the ages of 10 years to 16 years. The cost is €250 per child with family discounts available. There is a maximum capacity of 10 participants with 2 facilitators and each ‘young animator’ is ensured a high level of one-to-one activity and is guided at their own level.

All materials are provided.

Do join us for a fun and enjoyable week of animating!
