First published in Pendle

VOCATIONAL IT students at Nelson and Colne College Sixth Form have been learning about the technology behind the media during a visit to the National Media Museum The Bradford museum is devoted to film, photography, television, radio and the web.

A group of twenty five students from the college’s First Diploma in ICT course joined in the visit, which had special emphasis on the use of IT in animation.

The students took part in a stop animation workshop run by a professional animator and were taught how to make characters and film them using industry standard technology.

One student who made the trip, Zeshan Mirza, said: “I really enjoyed learning about and making the animation with Jack the animator.

“However, the whole museum was a great day out and I was amazed by the real-life feel of the IMAX. I am definitely going to go back and watch other films there.”
