This was the first Claystation event. It took place during designersblock, London, 25th-28th September, 2003 and involved the production of a giant, narrative-free claymation animation. Over the course of the four-day event, visitors were encouraged to purchase a lump of plasticine, which they would then use to model anything that took their fancy. This was then placed on a 'stage' where the amateur animators would interact with others' creations. The whole lot was filmed in stop-motion culminating in ten minutes worth of gripping drama. You can view pictures from this event below.
