Let’s Animate the Firebird at Standalone Farm 2015

home webwebroundworkshop

During the Family Arts Festival in October, Jane ran a two day project at Standalone Farm as part of their autumn events programme.  Taking the firebird stories and poetry as inspiration, people of all ages and abilities were invited to create puppets, backdrop and animation clips using a range of media and techniques, including light boxes, recycled cardboard puppets, natural materials and coloured cellophane. Over 100 people attended on each day and there was a wonderful, festive atmosphere as everybody learned new skills and experimented with animation techniques.

Here’s a short video showing some of the activities and animations:
