Focus Group: 16mm Direct Animation Workshop
Apr. 26 | 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Focus Group, a program series at the Visual Arts Center, welcomes filmmakers Rachel Stuckey and Lee Webster, who will lead a workshop that explores cameraless animation. Preceded by a short screening and a brief lecture on the history of the medium, the all-day workshop will demonstrate how to draw, paint, etch, and collage directly onto 16mm film to create beautiful and rhythmic moving pictures. A screening at the end of the workshop will premiere the participants’ animations and also feature a curated selection of seminal and contemporary filmmakers working in the medium. The screening is open to the public, so participants are encouraged to invite friends and family!
