Sunday 5 - Friday 10 February

Animexperience is organised for young potential animators, film makers and computer games developers. Entry to all Animexperience events is by invitation only.

Once again Animexperience offers anyone with the slightest interest in animation and computer games an opportunity to dip their creative toes into the digital and creative industries pool - come on in, the water's lovely.

Animexperience has facilitated numerous workshops and educational forums around the globe. 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.

Animexperience runs from Sunday to Friday during the Animex festival and will host workshops, screenings, lectures and talks from artists and scientists who have worked on major feature films and computer games. So, if you want to know how fish can talk and why digital water looks so real, crowd scenes are developed, or how to draw a cartoon car, then get yourself along to Animexperience.

Please contact us at if you'd like further information on this part of the festival.

Come on Teesside, let's get animated!
