Build Your Own Cinema Workshop #1: The Blue Abyss

Friday 10th December, 2021 Posted by Brian Harley

Last month, we delivered our first Build Your Own Cinema workshop at Sidney Stringer Primary School in Coventry with facilitator Martin McNally.

Martin worked with over 30 year 4 pupils creating props and teaching animation techniques enabling would-be animators to develop an ambitious stop motion short film called The Blue Abyss, which explores oceans, ocean life, environmental themes.

"Thank you Flatpack for a great day! The children had a great time, very impressive jelly fish!" - Year 4 teacher Lise Reeve

Check out the finished film below - we think it raises some senior points about our oceans whilst also being very impressive. Congratulations to everyone who participated in the workshop!
