About the workshop

Stopmotion animation is an easy yet artful way to produce high quality video with photographic means. The technique reminds of fantastic animated movies from Czechoslovakia in the 1960‘s and of iconic television productions like sesame street
In collaboration with one of Veljes chefs we will shoot and process the pictures for a stopmotion animation.
The first part of the workshop deals with mechanisms of storytelling in stopmotion and the enhanced possibilities of humor by surprise, like movement by hands that you don’t see – an approach that is very different from shooting classic video. Appropriate examples will be shown to demonstrate what can be done and what has to be considered when planning to shoot a movie frame by frame.
The second part of the workshop will focus on the technical workflow from the camera to a finished clip. We will show you when to use Photoshop and when to use Premiere Pro and how to deal with the shortcomings of both programs.
This workshop doesn’t require experience in stopmotion. But if you wish, you can send us samples of your work after the booking. Hans and Christopher will use these examples to coach you even more efficiently.
