PRO/DEV 2021: Intro to Animation

Wednesday, May 22, 2021
6 PM – 9 PM
Instructor: Annie Webber

This workshop will give you the tools to make your own magic! Through discovery and play with a variety of animation techniques, we will learn to create stop motion works, we’ll rotoscope video sequences, and create experimental cel animations. We’ll look at cool examples of animation throughout film and tv history, build pre-filmic devices like phenakistoscopes, and practice our new skills in small groups as well as individually.

Centre[3] is partially physically accessible. We have a level entrance leading to our shop, information desk, galleries, washroom and traditional print studio. Unfortunately, we do not have automatic doors or an elevator. Our silkscreen studios and digital lab are only accessible by stairs. We are working toward becoming a physically accessible space in the future.
