The PGA East Seminars Committee invites you to...

STOP-MOTION
ANIMATION WORKSHOP


Saturday, June 1 from 10:00am - 1:00pm

School of Visual Arts
137-141 West 21st St.

MFA Computer Art Department, 10th Floor
 
PGA Members only

In this workshop, producers will learn the basics of stop-motion animation - a technique that dates back to the earliest days of cinema but is now finding new popularity and possibilities as a result of digital technology.

We will cover the principles, practices, benefits and limitations of this style of animation. And there will be hands-on experience in creating it - which will not only help you to better understand (and produce) it, but may even inspire you to do more on your own.

The focus will be on short-form rather than feature work, with particular relevance to shorts, Web series, title design, interstitials, and segments of long-form productions (including broadcast).

The workshop will be led by PGA New Media Council member Trilby Schreiber, a digital media producer and faculty member for animation and digital art at SVA.

Format
The workshop will include a brief historical and contextual overview, screening of examples, and demonstration/instruction. The group will then break into small teams to create (very) short animations on their own, then re-convene for post-production and viewing.

The session will last 3 hours and is limited to 16 participants (PGA members only). Those on the waiting list may audit/observe.

Equipment

You may bring your own camera, but it is not required. If you do bring a camera, please make sure you have 4G of empty storage and your cable/card reader to connect to a Mac or PC. Tripods and remote/cable triggers are also useful. You may also bring your own laptop with any editing program of your choice.
