LOMAA is pleased to host Leslie Supnet as the eighth participant in its Visiting Artist Program. During her stay Supnet, an emerging Winnipeg-born and Toronto-based animator and filmmaker, will be facilitating a stop-motion animation workshop. This workshop will be presented in partnership with UnLondon and hosted at 121 Studios. Additionally, Supnet will be presenting a screening of her recent animation and film works.
This workshop will cover basic under-the-camera 2D stop motion animation techniques using paper-cut out puppets. Puppets will be hand-drawn and hinged or made from found images from books and magazines, which will be animated using iStopmotion software and a DSLR camera. Examples of paper-cut out animation will be screened by Martha Colburn, Terry Gilliam and Leslie Supnet. All equipment and materials needed for this workshop will be provided onsite. Please bring a portable USB drive.
Please email email@example.com with questions or to reserve a spot because space is limited.
