School Holidays at the National Motor Museum – GooRoo Animation – Make Your Own Movies!

GooRoo Animation workshops will be held on the first weekend of the holidays where you can learn to create your very own movies. They will teach you about what goes into making a film, giving you a behind the scenes glimpse into producing an animated movie.

Movies will be filmed and put together using the Stop Motion Studio App available on mobile devices. They will then be uploaded to YouTube via the GooRoo Animation Workshops channel so you can share them with all your friends and family.

The Bigger Book of Pirates – A Dragon’s Tale
Join Captain Salmonbeard and his reluctant crew during the holidays at the South Australian Maritime Museum for another perilous adventure on the seven seas. The bumbling crew of scallywags and misfits have become lost at sea on their very first attempt at becoming ‘real’ pirates. While wallowing in the watery wilderness, a mysterious, though strangely familiar visitor, emerges from the depths and offers them help. The crew are going to having to write their own book of piracy as they’ve strayed so far off course. And according to pirate legend, that book can only be written in dragon’s blood… The Bigger Book of Pirates is an adventure packed with surprises, on an ocean of possibility. Produced by the ever popular HeapsGood Productions, The Bigger Book of Pirates features performers from both HeapsGood and the critically acclaimed Adelaide Youth Theatre.
