  • Return to NDPLS

    Recently, I was asked to return to the North Devon Personalised Learning Service in Barnstaple, where I had done a series of animation workshops for RIO last year. The service had some funding to offer some of the same work, but with a new intake of students for 2012. I was there for 3 days, working with the students to produce short animated sequences that would help lead to their i-media qualifications. I had a lot of fun working with them. Their ideas were drawn from already existing television and gaming media, so we used a collage aesthetic to make their animations, printing images from the internet and combining that with craft materials. The result is quite funny in places, similar in a way to Terry Gilliam’s Monty Python’s Flying Circus animations. Anyway, have a look at the work below. I think the students were pretty inspired by the end of the week, seeing their animations playing on the schools’ widescreen TV for all to see. I hope to continue my work there in the future if possible, it would be great.
