Instructor: Evan DeRushie
In this workshop, participants aged 16+ will learn the refined and delicate art of making a giant bloopy mess, also known as stop-motion animation. No experience necessary, but lack of experience is encouraged and will be celebrated. Over two days, the mystery of stop-motion will be systematically dismantled, as participants learn how easy it is to make their own animation. Each participant will work at a station equipped with a camera, light and computer, and will get their hands greasy learning how to animate frame-by-frame. Short exercises to start with, including plenty of time for experiments. By the end of the weekend, everyone will contribute a short segment to a musical claymation masterpiece that will screen at the start of the Best of the Fest film package.
