Inspired by the works of Witold Giersz, whose retrospective will be presented at the National Gallery, the London International Animation Festival team will be running 4-day animation workshop giving the children the chance to learn the basics of animation. Participants will practice drawing, painting, creating characters, sets and backgrounds and learning how to use the animation equipment to produce their own short animated films. Children will get a chance to watch some of Witold Giersz’s films and to meet and talk to the director, who will visit the workshops on Sunday 17th to see fragments of the created work. The tutors will take away the footage to finish off editing the films outside of the workshop. Each child will then be sent a DVD of the finished films and the films will be posted on our Vimeo and YouTube channels as well as screened at the Riverside Studios. Free event but booking essential.

Organized in partnership with London International Animation Festival.

It would be great if applicants had the time to write a short story of just
one paragraph, which could act as inspiration for their ideas during the
workshop. You can submit a story alongside your application, but don’t be
intimidated, this is not part of the application process – so you don’t have
to if you don’t want to!

This workshop is FREE for children but please note that  booking is
essential, as there are only 12 places available. The workshop is being put
together by London International Animation Festival, run by their own DBS
checked animation tutors who specialise in children’s animation workshops.
It will take place at the Riverside Studios, and will be spread across two
full weekends: 9/10th and 16/17th of March (10am-4pm each day) – because we
can only offer 12 children the chance to participate in this exciting
programme, please ensure upon application that you are able to attend all
four days of the workshop (if you have any problems regarding attendance
please feel free to get in touch with Jennifer Jackson the KINOTEKA workshop
coordinator – email: jennifer.jackson@kinotka.org.uk).
