Animation is one of the oldest techniques utilized by storytellers to manipulate the sequences of images. With animation, filmmakers found a way to explore and push the potential of filmmaking by exceeding the boundaries of imagination.
The short course is designed with a hands-on approach to help the participants think outside the box as they explore the fundamentals of animation and its various styles, such as hand drawn and stop motion, through the use of traditional and unconventional materials. Editing and sound design are included in the discussions. At the end of the workshop, the participants will have a chance to view their final output.
