Film Magic - animation film project for young people with social communication needs, ASD and Asperger's syndrome

Create animated films using a mixture of locations, objects, cut-outs and special effects. 'Smoke and Mirrors: The Psychology of Magic' is the Wellcome Collection's spectacular summer exhibition, displaying fascinating artefacts linked to the world of magic and illusion.

The exhibition explores what magic and conjuring can tell us about the human mind. We will have access to this exhibition, including visiting professional magicians and areas of the gallery not usually available to the public, to develop our creative ideas while using specialist equipment and tuition from Suzanne Cohen, Film Educator of the Year 2018, as well as dedicated Wellcome Trust staff. This course is supported by NHS Speech and Language Therapists throughout the week. You will be involved in every stage of the creative process from storyboarding to designing characters, camerawork and editing. You will need to attend every day to complete the project, and will work together as a team to bring your ideas to life. The final films will be screened as part of the Camden Summer University Young People's Film Festival at the British Museum.
