August 2010 Mome. Stop Motion Animation Workshop
If you would like to learn how to merge the traditional hand-made puppet animation and the digital technique, and you are interested in puppet fabrication, special effects, and digital postproduction, you are invited to be a part of the Eastern Europe heritage, by practising and improving your stop motion animation skills.
Momeline organizes the Stop Motion Animation Workshop, an opportunity for the participants to learn from the best animators, in order to reach a higher level in stop motion animating.
The workshop is meant for professionals, young workers, former students and recent graduates. The ideal participant is a dedicated filmmaker who made his/her first animation before, and would like to develop his/her animation skills.
Among the themes of the workshop: how can we improve the animation technology by merging traditional animation technique with new digital technology? How can you improve your skills in making different kinds of movements in animation? Why is it useful to be able to make movements both in real and in virtual 3D space?
