Many intuitive decisions taken during the development of a project are made visible through documents such as drawings, models or collages. Each one of these documents develops a small part of the story that the whole project intends to achieve. These documents are developed with its own independency, and therefore can be explained with its own logic and qualities.

Then there is another stage in this process: a film comes to animate and put these documents in action by introducing movement on them, making evident situations that otherwise remain invisible. The drawings, worlds of illusions, are now animated by the films, which start to explain a new story inside them. These films become at its time new illusions, projected on the drawings which hold them and frame them. We are now trapped inside these magical pieces, alive in themselves.

The workshop proposes to reflect about the value of the film as an activator of a drawing, helping to bring the observer close to far away realities that the project creates, and adding its narrative condition to the story that the drawing itself is explaining. The film, with its own autonomy, is always complementing the document from which it starts.
