Adventures in Animation
Jul 19 - 23, 2021
9AM - 3PM
This workshop explores storytelling techniques through the worlds of animation and stop motion. Students produce their own movie using the playful art of stop-motion animation, creating sets and characters with a variety of material resources. The second half of the week is devoted to the emerging field of interactive animation. Students learn how to write processing code to create digital animations that can actually react to their surroundings.
