About Animachin

Making movies. Making friends. Having fun!

Animachin founder Alex (Ani) Machin in India with students at Venkatraman trust school.

Beginning in 2007 Animachin's goal has been to create a quality creative experience for kids, in a fun environment.

We know claymation (or stop motion animation) can be tricky,

so we've brought years of professional experience along with

us to help kids create incredible movies that they'll want to

watch again and again.

Over the last 11 years, Animachin have run workshops

all over Melbourne and have even traveled as far as India to provide experiences to underprivileged kids.

We love inspiring young people to be creative and to make magic out of thin air...and plasticine!


The workshop exceeded my expectations. It is absolutely mind-blowing. I have sent it to a few friends of mine and they definitely want to enrol their kids next term. The kids not only enjoyed the workshop but also loved working with you. Thanks again.

My son loved creating his own animation in this workshop. He had just seen the Wallace and Gromit exhibition so was really inspired. The workshop was planned out well, so they had time to develop their creative ideas, create and build the characters, build props, record the character voices and produce the animation. Alex completed the editing and sent it to us soon after the workshop. My son felt really proud of the end product. He came home inspired to do more Claymation himself.
