Event details

Kids, join us for an interactive workshop that will give you the unique chance to bring your favourite toy to life!

Yes, really!

After you have had your toy scanned to capture a 3D digital replica, you will craft a simple story using a storyboard and then direct a motion capture actor to bring your toy to life on screen through motion capture technology.

The workshop will wrap up with an exclusive screening showcasing your toy as a fully-animated short-film star!

There are 5 one-hour long sessions, starting at 10am, 11am, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm. Please select a session when booking your ticket.
