WORKSHOP II: Cut Paper Animation
Come learn the technique behind the quirky and fantastic animations of Monty Python's Flying Circus! This stop-motion technique uses flat backgrounds and puppets made from 2D materials, like paper and photographs. In this intensive 4 hour workshop, students will make a short animation where they are the main characters in a fantastic world of their creation! We will learn how to make jointed paper puppets and animate under the camera.
For inspiration, we will watch several animated films which use the cut paper technique in innovative and unique ways.
