Animation Exploration Masterclass + Mega Maker Lab entry

25th August 2019, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

You’re invited to… Animation Exploration Masterclass

Working individually or in pairs, children will explore the world of stop motion animation to create their own short animation film.

Using characters, scenes and props children will be challenged to use creativity and conjure life into their objects whilst developing an interesting story for their audience.

To do this, they will find out how to use Zu3D Animation Software to capture images along with a few tips and tricks along the way. Once children have captured their movie, there will be an opportunity to add sound in the form of voiceover, sound effects and background music, and if time allows they can include titles and credits to finish off their masterpiece in style!

Once complete, films can be uploaded to the Zu3D gallery to watch at home.

This is a great activity for storytellers and animation lovers alike, a real opportunity for creativity, with a little logical thinking, presentation and planning thrown in too.

Please note that animated films will be available to view once uploaded Zu3D

How much is a Masterclass and what does it include?

A ticket is £25 and includes 1 hour masterclass for a child and an accompanying adult.

Accompanying adults need to stay on site throughout the masterclass and we recommend you join in the masterclass. A £25 ticket also include entry to Mega Maker Lab for 1 adult and 1 child, which is in the main hall outside the Imagination Lab. Additional adults and children in the group that will not take part in the masterclass but want to explore Mega Maker Lab must buy a ticket. You can add additional entry tickets to Mega Maker Lab here, or you can purchase Mega Maker Lab tickets separately on the event page.

Who are masterclasses for?

Children aged 7-12 years and an accompanying adult.

The masterclasses are aimed at children, but an accompanying adult needs to be on site at all times as these are not drop-off events. Adults can also attend and enjoy the workshop too. The ticket includes entry into Mega Maker Lab which is an experience designed for adults and children to enjoy together.

Can I attend a masterclass without visiting Mega Maker Lab?

The masterclasses are an additional experience as part of the Mega Maker Lab and by booking a space at a Masterclass you get entry to Mega Maker Lab for one child and one adult included. It is not possible to attend a Masterclass without also entering the Mega Maker Lab, these tickets are combined.

When can I go into Mega Maker Lab?

You can enter Mega Maker Lab anytime between 10am-5pm on the day your masterclass is booked, so that’s before or after your Masterclass time. Entry with a £25 ticket is for 1 adult and 1 child. Any additional adults or children in the group not attending the masterclass must buy tickets separately.
