On thursday 21 August we run a fantastic workshop at Watford Museum where we used traditional 2D animation to create a a short animation. The whole piece is inspired by the work of Joy Batchelor, the pioneer animator behind the movie “Animal Farm”. Joy was born in Watford and studied art at the local college.
Have a look at the gorgeous result of our little (and not so little) animators. We have created one long version and a shorter version as a trailer for the Big Draw event running in Watford on the 4th October
