Evening

This evening workshop is designed to teach you the basics of lip-synching in stop-motion animation.

Using a plasticine puppet you will learn how to create the illusion that your puppet is speaking and how to create expressions that make the viewer feel as though your puppet is thinking.

During this workshop, you will learn how to ​create a puppet from plasticine and lip-synch using sculpting tools to cut out different shapes to create words.

In addition to this, you will also learn the basics of Dragon Frame, which is essential stop-motion software where you can playback your footage and see your puppet move. It will also allow you to make amends along the way as you can track the flow of movement as you are working.

I was excited for a week before taking this class, and it certainly did not disappoint. Jenny is a wonderful teacher, and everything was explained clearly. The learning was practical: she started demonstrating things and later encouraged us to try first, all the while supporting us. We were also shown several animation clips, and given a passage from a book, to enhance our understanding. She was happy to go on tangents to answer any questions we had, and to gear the session towards personal projects, which shows how much she cares, and was only possible due to the small class size of 2.The only thing I would say, is that two and a half hours absolutely whizzes by. If you can afford the weekend class that would certainly be worth the money, because this one definitely was.I am a university drama student working on a stop motion animation film for a university project. Before attending the class I had read a couple of books, and attempted my own animation excersizes. I cannot emphasize how much this workshop, and Jenny's expertise, has enhanced that learning, inspired me and will continue to help me throughout the project.Thank you so much! I'm very grateful, and am hoping to come to another class in the new year (after my project, so just for fun!).

Great, hands-on workshop. Jenny is a true professional and you will learn (and do!) a lot even in two and a half hours! Bring a notepad and pen to take down any notes and tips. Also I recommend arriving a little bit earlier if you're unfamiliar with the London City Island area as it's easy to get disorientated the first time especially late in the evening when it's dark!

Jennifer is a wonderful teacher who puts so much effort into not only the teaching but following up with you to see how you're doing. I loved the class, it was fantastic value for money, and I don't think there are many places you could get such small class sizes. I can't wait to book my next class! Would recommend to anyone who has an interest in stop motion animation.

This class was really excellent. Firstly Jenny was friendly and is a real people person.She is totally professional and knows her stuff. Loads of info and advice.We got right down to it. Making a plasticine puppet and then animating it in stop-motion with lip-sync.Even better you get a copy of the performance and your puppet to mould again and again.My friends just could not believe I had done the animation it looked so professionalI am hooked and will be doing some of the 2day classes now.Great venue easy to get to at Canning Town and so you do not get lost Jenny meets you anyway.

Jenny was a fantastic teacher! I am a complete beginner and learnt so much about the animation process. The workshop was really informative and gave an overview of all the basics, including software, timings and positioning of the model. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to learn about stop-motion animation.
