Youth Animation Workshops
Cliff Productions and Community Impact Bucks are working in partnership to deliver a unique opportunity for disadvantaged young people in Buckinghamshire.
ANIM8 will provide up 40 young people the chance to create a short animation based on the values of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Through a series of fun, interactive workshops; participants will learn how to storyboard their ideas, create characters, build sets and capture their animation using stop motion techniques.
Workshops will be held in November 2011 and offered to targeted groups of young people for who opportunities like this are rare; such as children in care, young carers, young people living in areas of deprivation and young people with disabilities. The i-Van will be used as a production studio in conjunction with local schools and this will enable us to host them in all four districts of the county. Workshops will be free of charge to participants.
The initiative is a new strand of the county-wide Short Cuts Film Festival, to encourage, support and showcase films made by Children & Young People in Buckinghamshire. The animations will have a special screening at the festival in May 2012; where the audience will vote for one film to win a prize and trophy for the winning team.
ANIM8 has been made possible by the support of our sponsors at Screen South, Wycombe District Council, Buckinghamshire Business First and Aylesbury Vale Arts Council.
