PLANKTOON A – Children’s animation workshop

The stop animation workshop is ideal for children who love art and film media. With the help of the workshop facilitator, the participants of this workshop will make objects from various materials and then, using a digital camera, shoot objects frame by frame, thus creating the illusion of continuous movement. The workshop aims to introduce participants to the basics of stop animation and train them to make a short animated film. Their final work will be shown at last day of the festival, on Friday, July 26, 2024.

The four-day workshop will take place in the mornings from July 23th till 26th in Matija gallery and the workshop participants will have the opportunity to take part in the children’s jury for Supertoon’s official selection of Animated Films for Children.

The workshop is intended for children from 10 to 14 years old.
