Our first workshop of 2020 is a hands-on session with Jess from GroundShatter. She is going to introduce herself and talk a little about how and why she got into working at GroundShatter, one of the companies based at Bristol Games Hub. Jess is going to introduce us to the basics of getting started with some flipbook/pencil animation, and then afterwards focus on character stuff like conveying poses and acting for animation to show us what’s involved. No experience necessary, just come and have a go!
nb Grrrlgames starts at 5pm and the animation workshop will run from 6-7pm. Grrrlgames is for women aged 13+. To find us follow the signs in Watershed to the pervasive media studio.
