This workshop is ideal for advanced students with experience in animation and stop-motion techniques, though beginners with a keen interest are also welcome. Over 5 days at Anibar 2024, participants will engage in intensive 5-hour daily sessions. Participants will learn to create professional silicone puppet hands and animate them in stop-frame sequences. By the end of the workshop, these sequences will be compiled into a short animated film.
