Peters Pals members and non members workshop - with Mike Guest

Photography and film making – 12th and 13th May 2017

Age group 7-12

Mike Guest, Edinburgh based photographer and film maker, led a two day, weekend workshop which was aimed at the age group of our Young Curators Club – Peter’s Pals. The sessions were well attended on both days with new young visitors to the museum included in the participants.

The workshops involved viewing the exhibition and discussing film making as a medium. Mike showed some of his own short films including some short animations. The group were then put into smaller groups and given some small objects and a camera set up in order to make their own stop motion animation guided by Mike Guest.

The second day of the workshop involved discussing sound effects and working together to overlay sound effects for their short animations. The group were then able to watch all the animations on the big screen.  Click here to see the animations they created.
