Space Explorer Movie Maker

Two Day Course (Tue 27 & Wed 28 Aug)

This two day workshop will give an introduction into digital composites, green screen and stop frame animation by combining video footage of you exploring the stars in a spaceship of your own creation!

Students can learn how their favourite sci-fi movies are made as they create and animate their own spaceship before filming themselves against a green screen and combining the footage in Adobe After Effects to make a film of them exploring the distant corners of the galaxy.

Skills and techniques covered will include:

  • Stop motion animation
  • Green screen techniques
  • After Effects compositing

This course is capped at only 6 places so advance booking is highly recommended. Suitable for those aged 10-15 years, a knowledge or animation or filmmaking is not required.

Please bring a packed lunch with you. Parents welcome to stay to help younger children and join in the fun.


Ashley’s short animated horrors ScarycrowThe Screaming Skull and The Hairy Hands have been screened across the world, winning numerous international awards. Ashley uses a wide array of animation techniques including rotoscoping, After Effects and stop motion and encourages those he teaches to experiment and rejoice in the form. He has also provided animated sequences for BBC Manchester and Derren Brown’s Trick of the Mind for Channel 4.
