+ 4 hours work time
Sunday, July 9, 2017 - 11:00am - 4:00pm
Enrolment is limited to: 

While most commercial animation is done using completed artwork, whether drawings or digital images, many of the finest animated films have been created by hand, one frame at a time, under the camera. Here is a chance to explore animation using paper cutouts, and Dragonframe, the premiere image capture software for stop-motion animation. This hands-on workshop can help you to understand the enormous creative potential available using these methods, tease out ideas for a project, and understand the relationship between content and technique with Leslie Supnet, an independent animator and experimental filmmaker. The workshop includes simple exercises aimed at developing a foundation in the illusion of motion and understanding the unique possibilities and demands of animating under the camera.



Leslie Supnet is a moving image artist whose practice utilizes animation, found media, and experimental methodolgies with film and video. Her work has shown internationally at festivals and screenings such as TIFF (Short Cuts Canada), International Film Festival Rotterdam, Melbourne International Animation Festival, Experimenta India, International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, and Edge of Frame/Animate Projects at Whitechapel Gallery. She has been commissioned by Reel Asian, Pleasure Dome /Art Spin, the8fest, Cineworks, and Film Pop! (Pop Montreal). Leslie has an MFA from York University Film and teaches analogue and digital animation at various artist-run centres, not-for-profits and for the Faculty of Art and Continuing Studies at OCAD University.
