About this Event

A must for aspiring animators and creatives… Newcastle Libraries presents ‘The Animation Masterclass’, a free event for High Schools. Students get the opportunity to create their own stop motion animation and have the chance to win a Wacom Pro tablet (valued at $550) for their school!

As part of Festival X and the School of Creative Industries, step away from the computer and have fun as the actor in your own animation. With ‘The Amazing Race’ as your creative brief, you’ll have the creative freedom to go wild. Schools will compete to create the most exciting animation as judged by a panel of industry experts.

Be inspired and learn the tricks of the trade from University of Newcastle’s Lecturer and animation expert, Jack McGrath as you learn the value of time and space in animation. Gain tips and tricks from University student, Daniel Cooper who has used his knowledge gained to work on animations for Wolf Mother and The Living End. Use the latest software to create incredible animations right from your iPhone or iPad and use your new skills developed to help you experiment and make your own animations from home.

In-Person Workshop details:

For School Groups only.
