Due to the fact that animation is the art of reviving, during the workshops we will learn together how to “revive” objects in our nearest surroundings. Is all we need a spoon and a fork to tell the immortal love story of Romeo and Juliet? Thanks to the use of stop-motion, everything that was previously a boring object of everyday use can become a hero of an exciting story. We will learn the secrets of classic animation techniques, and learn how to use our smartphone to become a real “wizard” of cinema. Let’s check together how little it takes to experience a real film adventure.
The participant’s task will be to familiarize themselves with the prepared educational material, and to use the techniques discussed in the film in independent experiments.

Materials required:
–     smartphone
–     selfie stick

Benefits for Students

Research shows that Animation appeals to multiple intelligences and a broad variety of learners. Creating a animation movie allows students to use their artistic and creative talents to communicate and tell a story.

  • Creative Writing and Language skills  are engaged while writing the script. Principles of storytelling, story structure, characters and settings help children express themselves and experiment.
  • Mathematical, logical, and spatial skills  are used in organizing the visual project, sequencing the frames, timing and spacing drawings.
  • Science and Physics: Children apply the laws of the natural world to their animation. Persistence of vision, cameras /projection technology, laws of movement, velocity, gravity and metamorphosis are scientific principles that children are exposed to while understanding the principles of animation.
  • Art and Creativity is encouraged when students draw and animate their stories applying aesthetic principles of design, composition, contrast and visual symbols.
