LIAF 2017: KinoManual ‘Direct’ Animation Experimental Workshop

December 3, 2017
10:00 amto4:00 pm

We are incredibly excited to welcome two of the World’s most exceptionally talented proponents of ‘Direct Animation’ to LIAF 2017. Maciek Baczyk and Aga Jarzab (both animators and musicians from Poland, collectively known as KinoManual) will be running a unique workshop for anyone who wants to experiment with the moving image and sound, as well as get messy, have fun… and make a film!

This one-day workshop will encourage participants to explore the huge array of techniques that ‘camera-less’ filmmaking embraces, as well as discover new approaches along the way. You’ll be encouraged to select materials, techniques and tools that work for you. Drawing, painting, scratching, sticking, bleaching, applying Letraset, stamps, flowers, leaves and all manner of other small objects – all can be applied directly onto the surface of leader (blank) film and previously shot material. You’ll work with a 16mm projector, or simple animation software and a digital camera. All you need is patience, imagination and a sense of fun.
