Summer Youth Animation Camp at Galway Film Centre | Book a place today!

Get creative and learn to make your own animation!

We are pleased to announce a Animation Camp at Galway Film Centre this Summer!

The Animation Camp will run from MONDAY 16th to FRIDAY 20th JULY from 10am and 3.30pm at Cluain Mhuire on the Wellpark Road.

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 participants story-boarding and creating their 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.

At the end of this 5 day workshop each participant will receive a DVD with the finished film including the names of all participants on the credit list. The resulting animations will be 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 all between the ages of 10 to 16 years. The cost is €250 per participant (with family discounts available), there is a maximum capacity of twelve participants and all materials are provided.

Do join us for fun days of animating!
