Workshops


Clay Puppet Animation Workshop
Our most popular workshop! Decorate and film your very own, professional stop-motion puppet and take the puppet home with you. Spend the first half of the workshop personalizing your "actor" with googly eyes, buttons, feathers, etc. Then lights, camera, action  it's time to make your puppet come alive. Use your imagination to place your little "actor" in a series of poses that add up to action! After the festival, we post the final films for download so that each child has a copy of his/her own. Each day we screen a sneak peek at workshop films before the afternoon feature.

Pixelation Workshop
What is Pixilation? It's an animation technique that uses the most readily available tool at your disposal  your body! In this workshop, the participants are the actors. Just change your pose slightly from one photo frame to the next and you will magically float, fly around a room, ice skate, disappear and reappear in a different location, slide along the ground, drive an invisible car, or almost anything else you can imagine! After the festival, we post the final films for download so that each child has a copy of his/her own. Each day we screen a sneak peek at workshop films before the afternoon feature.

Dates:  Saturday, January 25 & Sunday, January 26, 2014

Found Object Animation Workshop
Make objects come alive! Using found objects, participants will create short stop-motion animated films. Select your objects and use your imagination to change their placement slightly from one photo frame to the next to tell a story. Watch the objects come alive as they disappear and reappear, travel from one side of the screen to the other, or magically create cool patterns and designs.
