Hopping Future and Bouncing Past – Animating Silhouettes and Paint

Our world changes depending on how things move. From children that used to play with mud, or chase each other in the woods, now we’re facing the new generation that spend their time on tablets and smartphones. We want to explore the differences between the way things are moved in the past and the way they move now and in the future. The participants of the training which will be held from Mikoláš Fišer and Viktorie Štěpánová will have the great opportunity to create a short story with the use of some of the oldest animation techniques – using the silhouettes of paper in the glass, as in the oldest animated film of Prince Ahmed’s film from 1928. In this workshop the participants will record sounds and they will also do the music of the animated film! Join us and we can bring your ideas to life!

We have taken care to select the best trainers for the workshop with the young people.
