• Watch Footage from the Pirates Animate It Event!

    In November Animate It! teamed up with BAFTA for a live animation workshop at the Barbican in London focusing on Aardman’s latest feature film The Pirates!  Watch the videos below to see what happened at the event!

    Budding young animators had the chance to try their hand at a range of piratey animation techniques, including storyboarding, designing a pirate hat, developing their own pirate character and making their very own Polly parrot out of clay!

    In the live Animate It! interactive presentation young animators got the chance to look behind the scenes on Aardman’s latest movie, The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! The Aardman team demonstrated how they animate their puppets and use voices and scenery to full effect, and the audience even got to participate in the animation process too!

    Keep an eye to your telescope and look out for more Animate It! live events touring round the country. The next one is taking place at the Eden Project this half term!
