Hopping Future and Bouncing Past – Animating silhouettes and Paint

Our world changed the way it moves. Kids used to fly kites and run around the woods, now they turn to screens and phones. We want to reflect the differences between the way how things moved in the past and the way how they move now and how they are going to move in the future. Together we are going to create a short story with the use of some of the oldest animation techniques – using the paper silhouettes on glass, just like in the oldest animated full-feature movie Prince Ahmed from 1928. This we will contrast with wild and dynamic painting on glass. We also will record noises and make our own music as well And finally, we are going to put everything together in a computer. Join us so we can bring your ideas to life!
