Welcome to animation-workshop.co.uk. I am Mike Futcher. I have ran workshops in
- Stop-motion cutout

- Digital 3D
- Digital 2D with Flash
- Zoetrope – creating a 12-frame loop in a device that requires no electricity
- Building a maze filled with people’s experience of the NHS’s cancer services
Participants of all ages and abilities have created the clips that are viewable in the “portfolio” section of this site.
- I have my own portable system.
- I have an up-to-date CRB check.
- I am a professional animator.
- I mostly work in the East Midlands and South Yorkshire, but am willing to travel.
- I have run workshops for events and with groups.
- The animations created at a workshop can easily be put onto Youtube, or made into DVDs, etc
- I would be interested in running workshops that combine animation with other media, such as film,
- puppetry, or video-jockeying (live video mixing).
