Brilliant 2-day workshop with Jenny. Starting with making figures, we moved on to character development and story-boarding, then filming a couple of short scenes. (Luckily, we had time to re-do my first effort!) Jenny really knows her stuff and passes on her knowledge freely and with enthusiasm, so we left with a lot of useful information. I went with my 14 year old son, and we both loved it.

Ryan - August 16th
I found this workshop extremely informative. Despite having previous experience using DragonFrame and playing around with stop motion, working with a professional animator was invaluable. I learned a lot about workflow and various stop motion skills that I would have really struggled to have mastered on my own.

Jennifer - July 30th
This class was fantastic. As someone relatively new to stop motion, I walked away with a firm grasp on how to use Dragon frame, how to build wire armatures, how to manipulate clay puppets, how to rig up a camera with what you have, and countless other tricks for making stop-motion animation on a budget or with a small crew. Jenny was very thorough, very informative, and super warm and friendly. The class was just me and one other student which allowed us to really get into everything, ask questions, and create our own 30-second​ animation! I would definitely recommend this class to anyone at any level who wants to learn more.

This workshop was great fun. Every year on my birthday I do something I've never done before, and this year I chose this workshop. I didn't have previous experience in this type of creative endeavour, but Jenny made it fun and easy to learn. The workshop was structured well and we (my animation partner, Jenny and myself) fully enjoyed the two days. It's full on but you get so caught up in enjoying what you are doing the time flies by. I think anyone whose interested in getting started in stop motion animation or even just curious and want to learn how the "magicians do their tricks", give this a go... Oh, and you don't have to be an art student or a young person to take this course... I'm 44 now!
