2 Weeks in Volda, Norway

Myself and 3 fellow BA students have spent the last 2 weeks in Volda, Norway at the school of Animation. It has been an amazing experience, where we have partaken in acting for animators workshops, as well as puppet animating excercises. Having never animated a puppet in stop motion, I was pretty nervous going into this, but found that the principles of animation that are the same across the board are easily applied to a new discipline. I have had an absolutely brilliant fortnight, and am looking forward to putting what I have learnt into practice. I will post the work I produced, as well as examples of the acting workshops we took part in in the next few days.
