Visit from Aardman Animation model maker Jim Parkyn
We were incredibly lucky to have a visit from Jim Parkyn, a senior model maker from Aardman Animation this morning to teach us how to make a model of Hognob from Early Man. This was an amazing experience and allowed the pupils to see how they can turn a block of clay into a character from the screen.
We were also joined by three pupils and a member of staff from our close neighbours Brynnau Primary.
In the afternoon, we then had a go at creating a few short stop-frame animation films using our models.
