About the Course
Learn new skills at The Sill this Spring with our Animation Workshop.
You will prepare your film by painting and/or drawing your chosen set of wings and will then use a variety of animation techniques coupled with glorious Northumberland scenery to make your bird fly across the National Park.
Groups of four-families, friends or just individuals who will be grouped together. No experience necessary. All ages & abilities welcome.
You will be working with experienced animators Haltwhistle Film Project and National Park Ecologist Gill Thompson will be on hand throughout the workshop to talk through the difference between a Heron, a Lapwing or a Skylark and a Curlew.
All participants will be emailed a link from which they can watch and download the films which result.
The session runs from 10 am until 3 pm.
