Two Day Animation Tooncamp offers 8-12 year-olds a chance to create their own animations using freely available apps on their own devices. Tutored by animator/designer Beale Gurney, the workshop will introduce some key techniques related to animation, and gain insight into the process behind creating professional animations. Through a series of guided exercises, each student will have the opportunity to structure a story, create a storyboard, and create their own animation in their chosen style. There will be a showcase session at the end of the second day.

Beale Gurney has worked on 10 animated television series including Hoota and Snoz, Pixel Pinkie and Fanshaw and Crudnut. She also uses animation techniques in creating a range of other media including game design, web design, and the design of learning materials. Beale’s current role is as an Educational Designer at the University of Tasmania, in which she gets to make all these things.

Parents/Carers are invited to observe the final screening from 5-5:30 on 24/04.
