A practical, one-day workshop creating short animated films that mix traditional stop-frame animation, time-lapse, looping and pixelation. Pixelation is animation created using real people as puppets. Halfway between drama and stop-frame animation, it is a great way to make quirky films relatively quickly!

Working with experts in the field, participants will first brainstorm their micro-film ideas, work on the fundamentals of animation, get physical creating dynamic pixilated sequences and then learn how to combine different types of footage together to create a seamless piece. All work will be constructed to loop effectively, leading to lively shareable media. Final films (approved by the participants) will be made available digitally no more than two weeks after the workshop.
