Last time, 9 students from 5th to 9th grade took part in the Animation Workshop 2017.
For most students, this was their first time to create an animation. They worked hard together for 4 days to make out a 2-minute animation - creating the story, designing characters, drawing animation one by one, coloring and then, shooting them.
When their animation was previewed finally at the end of the fourth day, students were so thrilled and excited with joy to watch it.
The work is titled "Cat".
In December 2017, we had an opportunity to present the completed work inviting all the participants. Also, in August 2018, this work was screened at the large hall of festival venue in HIROSHIMA 2018
