Yesterday we hosted a full day of stopmotion at Colaiste Dhulaigh College of Further Education in Coolock as part of Keyframe, a weeklong programme of guest lectures.
We had two groups of students from the Animation Diploma course, and between them they created 6 short films, using cutout, plasticine, and sand animation.
While waiting for the films to be edited and uploaded, here are some photos from the class by way of a taster.
Enjoy!

A fun batch of films were made during this workshop. I look forward to you guys seeing them!

The animations will be up once I have a breather between projects

Photos from a 3 day Film in Miniature workshop hosted with Year 1 Design for Stage & Screen Students in 2012.

This project was used to get the students used to working in teams, allowing them to see the context of their own work, and how to coordinate as a group so each individual’s skills compliment the whole. Over the duration of the workshop the students storyboarded, designed and built props and characters for an animated film, with the last day spent animating scenes from the film.

The fairytales the students were tasked to adapt were:
Sleeping Beauty, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Red Riding Hood.

Hosted in September 2012 with Year 1 Design for Stage & Screen at IADT Dun Laoghaire

Workshop from last September:

We shall be featuring work from Eimhin’s IADT-DL students in the next few posts.

First up are these animations created by Year 1 Design for Stage & Screen for a multi-disciplinary project involving animation and theatre in September 2013.

The theme of the Project was “Tales from Another Land” and each group adapted a fable from a different continent:

The Girl who Baked (African), The Hero Twins (Mayan), The Magic Scissors (Asian), Fall of the Webman (North American), The Three Princesses (Persian), Babayaga (Russian)

These animations were used via projection mapping for Backdrops, Interactive Animated Characters, Special Effects, as well as for Prologues and Epilogues. .

Aisling Nolan, Alex O’Connor, Bridget Belcher, Caitriona Ryan, Cliona Campbell, Damien Crean, Dawn Soraghan, Declan Winser, Eimear Noctor, Elisabeth Whittam, Emily Smyth, Eva porter, Fay Wordingham, Fiona Mitchell, Hannah Dobson, Isobel Jones-McAuley, James Doyle, Kayleigh Bealin, Lisa Flinter, Miriam McCarthy, Natasha Bertram, Orlagh Tracy, Paul Kerney, Rachel Cody, Rebecca Doyle, Sarah Hempenstall, Sarah Higgins, Sarah McColgan, Shauna Griffith, Sian Fitzgerald, Yasmin Archer
