WORKSHOP: Gathering & Animating
Through a meditative and mindful approach, this workshop focuses on gathering natural materials like leaves, flowers, moss, feathers, rocks etc. to create unique stop motion animations.
Inspired by our grounding connection to the land, participants are asked to reflect on this important relationship and how it relates to storytelling and artistic exploration.
Then, participants will be led through the frame by frame creative and technical process of how to bring their ideas to life. Including: how to gather and prepare organic materials, animate in Dragonframe - an industry leading stop motion animation software, and how to utilize a light table to highlight the various tonal values and unique details found in natural items.
In the end, participants will have their very own animated sequences and have a better understanding of what this playful and experimental approach has to offer.
