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.

Random Acts 2015-2018

Our work here is done!

The fantastic journey that was Random Acts 2015-2018 came to an end in April.

Random Acts First Acts was a groundbreaking partnership between Arts Council England, Channel 4 and five agencies across the nation, including Calling the Shots in the South West.  The three years saw 72 short films made by film makers aged 16-24 years.  The results were startling with training, mentoring and continuing professional development and an array of exhbition and bursary opportunities for the successful artists involved.

You can watch some of the films on the Random Acts website and read more about the scheme on our archived page.
