Lupus films, the folks who brought you The Snowman and The Snowdog, are running a one day masterclass with animation industry veteran Frank Gladstone on August 16th in London - for just £6. Anyone who is serious about story telling in animation should attend - I'll most likely be there myself, furiously taking notes. Frank is a world-class talent whose credits include some of the biggest hits in animation history. I attended his month-long story seminar at Lupus last year. Full details below:
What is this class all about?
Animation guru Frank Gladstone’s masterclass, taught previously at ILM, the Visual Effects Society, Aardman Animations and Cartoon Network, will focus on the deconstruction of feature films, looking at elements such as story structure, use of colour, composition and camera movement, to reveal the fundamental elements of narrative structure and the building blocks of cinematic language.
