Explore Animation

Jon Wardle, National Film and Television School

##

Whether you’re a budding animator or a fan of animation who wants to understand more about what happens behind-the-scenes, this free online course from the internationally acclaimed National Film and Television School (NFTS) will have something for you.

Over four weeks, our team of award-winning animators will take you through their approach to telling stories and demystify their own animation technique.

Each week, our contributors will use examples from their own work, as well as the animated films that have influenced and inspired them, to enable you to explore different forms of animation:

1 - Stop motion or stop frame animation.

2 - 2D or cel animation.

3 - Big-scale animation in the real world.

4 - CGI or 3D computer animation.

The NFTS has teamed up with Creative Skillset to offer this course. Explore Animation features a number of award-winning short films made by recent graduates of the NFTS, and opportunities for you to try out small-scale animation techniques.

This course doesn’t require any existing, specialist animation skills or equipment.

There will be opportunities to try out animation techniques using everyday tools and free applications, if you want to enhance your learning experience.
