SATURDAY WORKSHOP: Graphic print animation



All the places are booked.

Have you ever wondered how cartoons are made? They’re a series of pictures, strung together so as to fool the eye into seeing movement. Using stop motion animation techniques, we’ll create a cartoon using graphic prints. Join us on Saturday, 16 February, at 10 am at RogLab!

We’ll start the animation process by creating characters and the background for your animated feature: we’ll make the matrix out of foam and cut it up using a laser cutter. Then, we’ll make prints on paper or wood by stamping the matrix onto the surface with ink or tempera colours. We’ll then go on to create an animated short using stop motion techniques.
