    Social club is also amazing, especially the fact that you're getting to meet new people and it's an amazing social experience. I would definitely recommend spectrum productions to anyone who wants to learn animation, film production or to let loose & have fun.

WHAT IS IT?

This popular animation club is based on creating cartoons, stop-motion animations and small productions with a focus on fun and collaboration.  Students with an interest in animation and a little previous experience can come hone their skills and learn  some new tricks. Each week participants will be engaged in a small workshop aimed at furthering their repertoire of skills and exposing them to areas of animation that may be outside their current area of interest.

Spectrum is very privileged to have two past graduates of the Mel Hoppenheim school of cinema facilitating the workshops.  Group size is limited and a commitment for a term is required.
