What makes a great stop motion animation?

Storytelling? Action? Special effects? What about all of these combined.

Our special online BrickFlicks stop motion animation camp allows you to make your very own witch flying,  zombie chasing, ghost spooking halloween movie. All you need is your favourite LEGO character and your imagination!.

We keep the number of participants to a minimum so everyone gets a chance to explore and develop their skills

For 4 days, join our animator for one hour online as you learn how to animate using storyboards, camera angles and how to make visual effects using materials you find at home. You will get feedback on your animations from the tutor and at the end of the week you will have your very own movie made including music and sound FX.

Perfect for budding young creators, animators or those who just want to have a go.
