Last week, Culture Night took place across the country. We already posted about our fantastic contribution to the Signal OutDoors project – worth checking out here if you haven’t already! The Mermaid ran a number of events on the night, including children’s animation workshops.

We in St Peter’s booked two places for our students to take part in the stop-motion animation workshop. Leon from 5th and Eduard from 6th took part and had a fantastic time. Both students are looking forward to teaching their classes how to use stop-motion animation. Maybe Film Club will be in the style of Wallace and Gromit this year! Another famous example of stop motion animation is Fantastic Mr Fox, which we went to see (also in the Mermaid) two years ago as part of our FAB (Film And Book) Project.

The group who organised the workshop edited the stop-motion clips from all the children into one video. Well done to Eduard and Leon – their clips are very entertaining. You might notice that Leon’s clip is a sequel to Eduard’s! Thanks to the staff of the Mermaid for organising the workshop – the Mermaid’s excellent children’s programme can be found here – some great films coming up in the next few months. Without further ado, St Peter’s proudly presents…
