BFI Animation Camp – Getting ready!

Just three weeks to go before our sixth annual BFI Film Academy Animation Camp!

We have recruited our 25 budding animation industry entrants who will be spending a week in February with us at beautiful Barton Camp in the Mendips, living and breathing animation.

Over the course of the week they will be trying out a range of classic animation techniques including pixilation, sand animation, lip-syncing and hand drawn production as well as learning about the fundamental principles of creating the illusion of life in an inanimate object or drawing.

Check back soon for news, photos and films from the camp.
