Animator Clifford Beddy joins Colossal for a workshop on the basics of stop-motion animation. In this two-hour session, participants will follow a playful storyline about a mouse and its quest to obtain a hunk of cheese, using everyday materials. Clifford will teach the necessary techniques for planning, lighting, tools, movement, textures, characters, and sound that will allow participants to create a variety of stop-motion creations.

Clifford is a stop-motion animation artist from South Africa. He makes creative videos with modeling clay, food, wool, and real objects. Before working with stop-motion animation, he held a variety of jobs around the globe, including making personalized jigsaw puzzles, editing wedding videos, teaching English in Asia, and screen-printing in Canada.
