Thanks to the Summer University of London 12 pupils aged 10 – 16 years took part in a four day animation workshop. Working with two professional animators, the children created a series of playful animation film. They spent the days planning, storyboarding, acting and recording their narration, and they learnt how to use Adobe Flash to create their drawn animation, and Garage Band to create a soundtrack. Using Flash the student learnt the basic technique of drawn animation.
