Animation is fun and a great way of creating imaginary worlds where anything is possible. But, how can we go one step further and use this almost boundless technical potential to talk about some real-world issues you find important? How to draw an idea for a film from personal experience or immediate environment and develop it further.
This workshop will quickly cover all stages of making an animated film, from the idea to storyboard to animation and post-production. The result is a (very short) collective animated film.
