In 2018, ACMI celebrated the arrival of Wallace & Gromit and Friends: The Magic of Aardman by creating this animation resource.
This resource can be used by teachers, students, families, or individuals to learn about the history of animation and the phenomenon of the moving-image, and to develop animation skills.
Create optical toys like the zoetrope, learn the ropes of stop motion animation, master the art of claymation characters, and more.
But first, why not learn a bit about stop-motion animation from one of Aardman’s animators? Watch the Q&A with Merlin Crossingham above before getting started. When you’re ready, start on the learning modules below.
