Finish the week by adding sound to your creations, creating your own gold medal short film!

Week two – Fairytales/Legends

 This summer, the supernatural will be coming to ACCT! We will be exploring a variety of different animation styles, including claymation, lego, object animation and pixilation. Whether you want to re-imagine your favourite fairytale, create the next vampire movie or make up your own legend we are here to help, all you need to bring is your imagination!
