JUNE 14, 2014 12pm – 4pm Cineworks Annex | 235 Alexander Street Suggested donation $5–10 for supplies | No registration required
Make your own hand drawn animations on 16mm film by drawing or scratching right on the film itself to make your own moving shapes and colours. Experiment with drawing on clear film, scratching on black film or marking film that already has images on it. The workshop will be led by Amanda Thomson and Zoe Kirk-Gushowaty.
Participants of all ages and experience are welcome.
Amanda Thomson is a filmmaker born and raised in Vancouver. Her work focuses on perspective, the subconscious and other things she can't quite put her finger on.
Zoe Kirk-Gushowaty is a Vancouver-based artist working with photography, filmmaking, video, and sound. She received her BFA in 2008 from Concordia University and currently coordinates the Cineworks analog darkroom and experimental lab. Zoe's work has been shown in Canada, U.S., and Japan.
