An animated stop-motion journey!

Goal: making a movie in one week! An audio-visual production workshop on animated cinema techniques
23 July26 July

We don’t send postcards anymore: but what if they could be animated to tell the stories of the travels we took along with the ones we dream of? Mastering techniques such as cut-out animation (cut-out cardboard) and collage (clippings, old photographs, photomontages, drawings), all this will be possible! Working on the story, on imagination, creativity, manipulation, recycling and stimulating both individual thinking and collaboration in small groups, we will create short stop-motion animations of which young kids will be screenwriters and directors.

Children and teenagers between the ages of 6 and 13

From Tuesday, July 23, to Friday, July 26 2019 from 3.00 pm to 6.00 pm
 4 sessions of 3 hours each (12 hours in total)

Circolo Culturale Minardi, via Borgo Santa Caterina, 62 (upstairs from Tijuana Restaurant), Bergamo


The workshop has a limited number of participants (max 15) and a €95 admission fee (inclusive of workshop materials) for the 4 sessions.
