Pokémon Teaches Kids to Animate
KidZania London features new stop-motion animation workshop.
The Pokémon Company International has launched the first Pokémon Animation Studio in Europe at the educational entertainment attraction KidZania London.
Now open at KidZania's Westfield London location, the Pokémon Animation Studio walks kids through the process of creating a short-film using stop-motion animation techniques.
Young animators will be split up into pairs, one director and one producer, and assigned to their own studio booth. Each booth is equipped with the latest stop-motion animation software that children will use to create the ending of a short film with Tomy Pokémon figures and props . At the end of the session, which lasts about 20 minutes, their masterpieces will be displayed on a screen outside the establishment. KidZania London offers kids a real-life introduction to the world of work, so participants will also be rewarded with kidZos, the KidZania currency, for completing the task.
