GooRoo Animation workshops teach students how to create their own movies in a range of animation techniques. The participants will get a behind the scenes glimpse of what goes into producing animation on a professional level. They will then learn how to bring their own characters to life using the Stop Motion Studio App available on mobile devices. The finished videos will be screened to the group and uploaded to YouTube via the GooRoo Animation Workshops channel to be shared with friends and family. The workshops are designed to inspire and provide the knowledge and tools to start making movies at home.
