Wriggles and Robbins, animators

  • Manchester School of Art, Manchester Metropolitan University

Although the Manchester School of Art Club had explored animation before their Masterclass with London-based directors Wriggles and Robins, the day with Tom Wrigglesworth and Matt Robinson took their experience to a whole new and exciting level.

Matt and Tom, who take a playful approach to their professional output, showed the young people examples of their work and then challenged them to create stop-frame animations using templates, squeezy bottles full of pancake batter and hot plates. In a lively, fun workshop members created the batter outlines, developed a narrative and chose a soundtrack. The day finished with an informative, informal question-and-answer session.
