Stop Motion Workshop

Sat. April 13: 2pm-6pm

Sun. April 14: 11am-6pm

Location: ACC Gallery, Burgplatz 1

Unexpected constellations, bold superimpositions, exciting connections – all this is collage. But how do these new combinations of found materials come about and in which direction could they develop further? In this workshop, we will work on various collages and transfer individual still images into movement using the technique of layering.

Two stop motion boxes and a professional stop motion station are available on site. Please bring scissors, pencils, sketchbook and newspapers/books/magazines of your choice, though material for collaging will be available here as well. If possible, please download the free version of the “Stop Motion Studio” app onto your own smartphone or tablet and bring it with you. Own picture templates are welcome.

Minimum Age: 16
Language: German (English on demand)
No special or previous knowledge required

Fee: 30 euros (incl. festival pass for the Poetryfilmtage)
