Once again Animexperience offers anyone with the slightest interest in animation and computer games an opportunity to dip their creative toes in to the digital and creative industries pool - come on in, the water's lovely.
Animexperience has facilitated numerous workshops and educational forums. It has presented an inside sneak preview of what it takes to make it in the world of cartoons or laser weaponry. It has developed strong links with educational and community support agencies. Over 3,000 schoolchildren and their families participate yearly, and the feedback, nationally and internationally, is phenomenal.
Work produced by schools and community groups has led to a rise in animation being used as a link to curriculum development and social expression.
A film produced by children aged 6 - 8 years-old from a selection of schools in east Middlesbrough was used by the prestigious Society of Vertebrate Palaeontology to illustrate how Animexperience workshops provide an exciting and stimulating approach to difficult subject matter such as pre-history and biology. As a follow up to that success, Animexperience will be presented at the Society's annual conference in Pittsburgh where a class of 30 American schoolchildren will make an animated film using the Animex NEToons Learning Pack.
So, if you want to know how fish can talk and water looks so real, crowd scenes are developed, or how to draw a cartoon car, then get yourself along to Animexperience.
Come on Teesside, let's get animated.
