Stop Motion Studio

This workshop focuses on the essence of all audiovisual media: how do you create movement, how do you play with images, and how do you translate an idea into a film?

In the Stop Motion workshop, students see how the illusion of movement works in film. They learn that film is made ​​up of many different still images that are played in quick succession, which creates the appearance of motion. The students investigate this for themselves by making a stop-motion film inspired by one of the films from the Eye collection. They work with coloured paper on light-boxes, as well as other materials such as mosaic tiles or black-and-white drawings. They work on their film in small groups, which teaches them how to work together as a team. In collaboration with Taartrovers.
