We did things a little differently this time around and had some Lego figures for people to animate with should they wish. Not everyone is a confidant model maker so we animated using figurines was a great way for everyone to join in.
One of the participants is a competent illustrator with a taste for the anime style and with a bit of cajoling translated a character he had designed into a plasticine model which he then set about animating.
We were most impressed by another participant’s skill and joy in mimicking any models we workshop leaders could make. He was so quick that at times all 3 of the workshop leaders were making things for him to copy, that they might get ahead of his relentless pace. By the end of the session the table was heaped with plasticine characters and their doppelgängers.
