Animation, photography & puppetry

James Jones Morris
I run workshops teaching people how to make their own animated films, starting off with simple techniques to get participants used to the concepts of animation and how to use the equipment. This can then be developed into experimenting with other forms of animation, and making longer, more complicated films bringing in narrative creation, sets, sounds and editing. It generally takes a long time to produce quite short animated film clips, but I have devised ways of running workshops where people can create an animated clip in as little as three hours, I have also run three-day workshops where students have time to have a really good go at making a film.
