What is stop animation?
Have you heard of Pat & Mat, Wallace & Gromit, Bob the Builder, Shaun the Sheep or Pingu? How about Terminator and Star Wars? These are just some examples of stop motion animation. The word animation comes from the Latin word anima, which represents the living force in every being. So to animate means to literally come to life. One of the animation techniques is stop motion animation, i.e. frame by frame technique. Stop animation is a technique of animating an object or a person. Stop motion refers to the method of obtaining apparently continuous motion. Each movement is photographed individually, and after a desired number of photos or a scene, all the photos are combined into a single sequence, creating a sense of continuous motion. In order for the movement created by this technique to look as real as possible, the shifts between frames should be as small as possible. This technique has been in existence for over 100 years and some of the most popular films of all time have been made with it.

The workshop will be lead by Tihana Mandušić from Split. Tihana graduated New Media from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb and completed her undergraduate degree in Film and Video at the Arts Academy in Split. She works in the fields of film, video and performance. She has participated in several exhibitions and festivals. She lead numerous film, animation and multimedia workshops for children and young people in collaboration with the Škola Gallery at the School of Fine Arts in Split and as part of the programs of associations Info Zona, Mavena, Shadow Casters, queerANarchive and Domine.

You can apply by phone at 021/766-324, by email at info@msg.hr or in person at the Stari Grad Museum, not later than 30 September 2019.
