Host: Mathijs Stegink 7-11.12.2016
The Bouncy Stretchy Stuff workshop is an animation workshop in which you will experiment with simple materials like pins and elastic bands! We will explore one of the most important principles of animation: squash and stretch. In teams, having nothing to start with but a basic idea about the theme, we’ll try to let our work and ideas grow: figuring out our concepts while experimenting with technique and materials. Working together, we will discover the story and create designs, putting them into our final animation. If necessary, we will use computers but don’t expect this to be a technology driven event! The participants need to bring an open mind (darlings will be killed), a lot of free time and the urge to express themselves and work with a group.
