Climate Challenge: 1.5° Films is a Film Access Scotland project that invites everyone to make 90-second films to share their thoughts on climate change and how it is affecting us as individuals, our communities, our families, and our surroundings. 

As part of the project, Screen Education Edinburgh are delivering a 3-day animation learning course for anyone over the age of 16 in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

You could be 16, 60, or 106, age is no barrier, just an interest in learning animation and saying something about climate change.

Learning from SEE Tutor Sharon Sorensen, with decades of experience in animation including films such as Jungle Book 2, you’ll be introduced to the concepts and styles of animation, story writing and storyboarding, character, animatics, set build and voice recording, and put all of this into action to plan and animate a 90 second film focused on climate change.

Taking place at Screen Education Edinburgh between 10 am to 5pm on Tuesday 19th, Wednesday 20th, and Thursday 21st April, the course is free to apply for and take part in, with travel support for those on low incomes or in receipt of benefits, with snacks and lunch provided to all each day.
