Intro to Rotoscope Animation (Two Sessions)
Sunday April 21st & 28th
12-3pm (6 hours total instruction)

Join studio co-founders bekky and Keith to learn all about the fascinating art of rotoscope animation on paper.  Rotoscope is the art of creating animation frame by frame by tracing reference footage (film or video) onto individual frames.  For this workshop we will be working with LED light pads and tracing with mixed media, anything from pencil to crayons and watercolour.  We will also learn about the rich history of rotoscope in film.  In week two we will photograph all our drawings using Dragonframe Stop Motion software and put them together into a short film.  The result will be a collaborative short animation that participants can use in their demo reels.

All materials and refreshments are provided.


Due to the size of our studio and parking lot we have a maximum enrollment for all workshops of 6 participants.  Sign up early to ensure your spot!

Please note that due to the necessity to purchase materials and supplies ahead of time all of our workshops are non-refundable.  Should something arise that makes you unable to attend we are happy to offer credit towards a future workshop of your choosing.
