The stop motion workshop is returning to FIFO for the 3rd time after great success in previous years.

How do you create movement with stationary objects ? How do you animate a character to make it walk naturally? What accessories are required ?

All the answers are provided in the ‘Stop Motion’ workshop, presented by Luce Pasquini.


In many ways the concept resembles the cartoon production process : a scene is filmed with the aid of a camera capable of taking only a single image at a time. Between each image, the objects in the scene are moved slightly. When the film is projected at a normal speed, the scene appears animated.

Luce Pasquini suggests devoting the morning to discovering two user-friendly pieces of software : XnView for image retouching and Object2VR for editing.

In the afternoon, the participants along with the facilitator will devise and produce a stop motion animation together.
