Animation for Social Change

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Animation offers a way to breach graphically difficult subject matter, uplift voices of marginalized people, and makes the impossible real. This workshop will go over the basics of a few animation approaches (rotoscoping, stop-motion, 2D puppet animation) and present a few animation examples. Participants will draw frames of a rotoscope piece, and work in groups to begin storyboard around a subject of their choosing. Participants gain a better understanding of the animation process.
