The British Film Institute (BFI) is running a session on animation titled "Raw Shorts" for aspiring animators and film-makers, on Saturday November 22nd in London, at 12.30pm. There will be lectures, workshops and Q&A panels on all aspects of animation production. We highly recommend that our students attend - at just £6 per head this is the perfect way to learn about the industry and maybe even meet some movers and shakers in the business.

"a look at how animation can bring another dimension to your film, or stand alone in its own right. Filming through a lens has physical limitations on what you can put and do in front of a camera. Animation offers a way of letting your imagination run free and achieve scenes that would otherwise be impossible to shoot."
According to BFI:
"Professional artists, animators and animation software experts will discuss the topic during an on-stage Q&A, followed by a choice of animation workshops and masterclasses on the most popular techniques of animation. At the end of the day you’ll also have the chance to network with industry experts and fellow filmmakers and animators"
