Animate & Create produced a series of ‘How to’ episodes that are a great source of information and entertainment and contain demonstrations and tips to help you get started with your animations.

The series starts with teaching you the basics of animation guiding you through creating your own animated flipbook, then moving on to creating your very own film! With the help of the videos you will make your own plasticine model and then bring them to life using the stop motion animation technique.

We also have interviews with Bagpuss co-creator, Peter Firmin, the man behind Shaun the Sheep, Golly and top tips from the designer of Bob the Builder, Curtis Jobling.

We also have a free info pack ready for download that contains plenty of teaching resources and animation ideas that support these videos!
