A fun way to learn about the basics of animation in a family-orientated workshop for everyone.
After a short practical introduction about how to draw and paint on film, with examples of what sorts of sequences of images are most effective, you will create your own section of animated film with easy to use materials. Participants will also use simple, effective foley techniques to record an accompanying soundtrack and music for the finished film.
Towards the end of the workshop, while your section of film is being edited with everyone else’s into one whole film, you can, if you like, assist the Cucinema company members to make a simple dinner of pasta with tomato sauce. Everyone then eats together and watches the film they have all contributed to the making of. No previous knowledge or experience is necessary, just enthusiasm and a sense of fun! Stay around for the whole afternoon or come and go as you please.
