Workshops // Animation Station

Last Friday Kieron gave us a little workshop on making puppets for animation, showing us the different materials and ways of putting together the skeleton and foundation of the puppet before building onto it to create the character. He mentioned that animations like Wallace and Gromit use this kind of armature to give the puppet/model  more mobility and stability but as Kieron explained they also need to be as light as possible so it can stand up on its own.

It was a very interesting workshop as someone who doesn’t know a whole lot about animation so of course I learnt new things!
