Create your own animation just like you have dreamed of.
The workshop focuses on the stop motion technique for both kids and adults. Little wannabe creators along with their parents will participate in the creation of main characters, et design, moving images synthesis and sound design. With the help of experienced facilitators participants will explore step by step the creation of an animation hosted at two separate work stations: the one of design and that of composition. They will glue, color and decorate paper character forming, as well, the set having the opportunity to direct their own films and composing the sound effects of it.
At the end of the workshop participants will take with them their creations.
