PIXILLATION ANIMATION AND THE ILLUSION OF POSSIBLE MOVEMENT
Minister: Marina Kerber
Date: 11/04, Sunday, from 15h to 18h
Content: In general, pixillation can be understood as the capture frame by frame, through photographs, of human beings and everyday objects that change their body and spatial position with each photo. Thus, when viewed in a certain sequence and speed, these photographs produce an illusion of movement. Through this technique, it is possible to make a person fly or to make an inanimate object come to life. This workshop aims to spread basic technical knowledge to make an animation frame by frame and, thus, understand the magic behind impossible movements. Exercises will be done using any type of camera (cell phone, webcam, etc.) to animate everyday objects that we have inside our homes and also human beings. We will animate and bewitch our Quarantine.
Workshop history: The proposed workshop is an offshoot of the project “Final de Semana Animado” created and taught by Marina Kerber. The project offers theoretical and practical workshops for beginners. It started in presence mode and, currently, it has also been adapted and presented through videoconferencing platforms, with the workshop “Animação em Casa”;.
