Pixilation Animation

  • Workshop

Create a short stop motion animation in which you are in it as well as the creator. The workshop will include story and character development, storyboarding, shooting and editing an animation. Artists Emma Sams and Nathalie El Baba will work together to host this workshop. 

What is Pixilation?

Pixilation is a stop motion technique in which live actors are used as a frame-by-frame subject in an animated film, by repeatedly posing while one or more frame is taken and changing pose slightly before the next frame or frames. The actors become a kind of living stop-motion puppet.

Nathalie and Emma have been working together for many years implementing art-based projects with young people. They have directed Sparks Youth Film Festival in East Clare for seven years and together run the majority of the workshops for this event. More recently they have been exploring the use of animation as a tool for allowing young people an outlet for creative and artistic expression.

The workshop is free but places are limited so booking is essential. Book now by contacting Emma on 087 778 2488.
