MagiMation are animation workshops for young people aged between 10 and 14 ish. Run by Tim Edwards of uniQpictures (uniqpictures.co.uk) these fun and informative workshops allow the free-flowing creation of typical animated narratives - explosions, hideous deaths, dinosaurs, aliens, parody and satire all played out through the mediums of plasticine, Lego (TM), objects and toys.
Some are held at Norwich Puppet Theatre (puppettheatre.co.uk) in Norfolk, UK. (some of the workshops, that is.)
Many of these films are used on the LOCOG / BBC Big Screen network throughout the UK as examples of locally generated material that can be shown. We are proud to be involved with these screens - especially when we were shown at Glastonbury music festival! (shame we didn't get invited).
The participants have advanced greatly in their animation skills and I look forward to seeing their names attached to great projects in the future.
