Create, Animate, Play
The Pop Project is a weekly workshop series run over six weeks facilitated by Cassandra Fumi.
We will develop and complete a collective story and learn the technical side of stop-motion animation. This can be paper, clay, object, or body animation, and we will then compose an original score.
Participants will work through a series of workshops:
Week 1 & 2: The Story,
Week 3: The principles of animation & creating 18 frames of stop animation for the collective story.
Week 4: Sound and Narration, the participants will create an original pop song that ends the film and those interested will narrate and score the short film.
Week 5: Editing
Week 6: A private watch party with popcorn.
The collective stop-motion animation short film will then be hosted by La Mama’s website so that all your friends and family can see what we have made. Let’s learn a new skill, let’s write a popping pop song, let’s have a ball in the zoom room!
Requirements: access to a device (smartphone/tablet) that can download a free stop animation app, coloured paper or clay, or toys/lego.
For: 10-13 year olds
At this stage this workshop series is FULL if you are super keen to get involved please email email@example.com and we will see what we can do.
