The awarded young artist, Marko Tadić, is the manager of our stop-motion animation workshop. The workshop will also include the journey through his body of work. Click here to take a look at the stop-motion animation he did for Lauba.
Exploring Stop-motion Animation workshop tries to teach its participants about the basics of stop-motion animation and, after a number of examples, to create their own animation with manager's help.
Stop-motion animation (or frame-by-frame animation) is an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own and thus create a story. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence.
Due to the development of technology, stop-motion animation became extremely popular in professional, as well as in amateur circles. This is so because stop-motion animation can be created by using a cell-phone and a professional camera, plus there are also a number of editing softwares available. Some of the well-known examples include: The Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton, an animated-musical directed by Henry Selick, completely made in stop-motion animation technique; as well as Fantastic Mr. Fox by Wes Anderson.
The workshop does not require any previous knowledge, only creative energy and enthusiasm. The participants should own their own digital camera (quality is not important) and have a computer at home. The program used for editing and all other instructions will be provided at the workshop. The workshop will take place at Lauba where the participants will be able to see the Non-permanent Exhibition of the Filip Trade Collection, which then can be used as a source of inspiration for their own works. After making stop-motion animations, each participant will present their work in Lauba, in the form previously agreed upon with the manager of the workshop.
