The Haunted Zoetrope
2.00 - 4.30 pm
Tutor: Cat Bruce
Venue: The Safari Lounge
Come and join us for an afternoon of HALLOWEENAMATION!
Let’s go back in time to the shadowy 1800’s and experience the eerie beginnings of animation. Working with a spooky array of cursed drawing materials you will discover the devious basics of creating a cyclical 12 frame hand-drawn animation, utilising one of the first apparatus ever used to trick the eye into seeing the illusion of movement: the Zoetrope.
This historical animation technique is definitely haunted, so prepare yourself for para-nimatio-normal activity as ghostly shapes appear to flicker in and out of view, menacing spectral forms dance unnervingly, and the creatures you create are brought to life before your very eyes.
