Abstract Narratives – Narrative Abstractions – fully booked!

Level: Beginners

Can abstract animation be used to tell stories? Can it be a ‘thinking space’ through which to reflect on concepts and ideas? Using simple animation techniques, workshop participants will probe the limits of narrative within the abstract moving image to create a series of complex animation experiments.

Techniques/materials: After Effects, drawing, photography, sound.

The material fee is about 30 euros for this workshop.
