Teaching Animation (8)
During the summer holidays I held an animation workshop at the Museum MARTa Herford which is a museum for contemporary art, design and architecture.
Lee Leyna, Leon, Johannes, Tom, Enrico, Jonathan, Lennart, Yannik, Max and Luca are between 9 to 12 years old, and the kids did a fantastic job. These are their videos which were made within one week:
A Quick Change shows the fatal consequences of a volcano eruption.
Slimozilla haunts a city and terrorizes its inhabitants.
In Jump’n’Platsch a guy jumps from a skyscraper although he forgot his parachute.
Change in Circles is a hand-drawn animation about, well, circles which are changing.
A new twist on flying tells the story of a modern Johnny Look-in-the-Air.
Do you know the joke about The Two Tomatoes? The fi rst one says, “Hello, Tomato!” and starts crossing the street. It gets hit by a car, and the other one says, “Hello, Ketchup!”
As usual, we used plasticine, paper, cardboard, watercolors, scissors and glue and last but not least our phantasy. I really love animation workshops with kids, they’re so creative and not afraid of failing at all…
