The West End Job Animation Training Video

As part of our project Beautness animation have been working with local primary schools to animate key scenes from the Cato Street Conspiracy.

Beautness is the alias for Tom Hillenbrand who planned a series of animation workshops. These sessions not only teach young people the story of the ‘West End Job’ but also allow them to learn traditional animation techniques in a fun and stimulating way, using both modern, user-friendly technology and camera-free techniques.
Tom studied animation at the University of Humberside and previously worked as an animation demonstrator at MOMI (the Museum Of the Moving Image) Education department.  You can find out more about his work here:
