TBC Animation Talk Shop with Dr Myria Christophini Njenga

Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities

Description

The Bold Collective Presents Glasgow Connected Network (Glasgow CAN) an animation workshop which aims to introduce participants to the medium of animation and in the realization of a GIF and a collective short animated film.

A free two-hour online workshop on how to collectively create and animate a walk cycle. Aimed at ages 13 - 24.

The workshop aims to introduce participants to the medium of animation and in the realization of a GIF and a collective short animated film. The participants will be asked to draw a full-body self-portrait based on a given template that will form a walk cycle. The self-portrait will not need to be realistic, it can be highly stylized and abstracted (with something resembling hands and feet so that it can be animated into a walk).

You will also be asked to record a sentence starting with 'I am' and a one- or two-word descriptor such as 'I am strong' or 'I am Glaswegian' and will be asked to think of a second sentence that explains what this sentence means to them. you will be asked to upload their drawings and sound clips on an online folder.

Myria will put all of your drawings together to form a walk-cycle with sound! https://www.ticketsignite.com/event/3943/talk-shop--animation-with---dr-myria-christophini-njenga--free-
