Over the course of this week-long summer course participants will work in groups to devise a stop motion animation based on a Visual Culture (Historical or Contemporary Art) theme. They will plan their shoot using standard methods - storyboard, shot list, prop list etc. Participants will shoot their film and learn how to save their work on cloud based storage. The teachers will film each other in front of solid colour backgrounds and digitally remove that background from the footage. They will composite their Chroma keyed footage into another background and add audio and text. Participants will create a poster/CD cover/DVD cover through digital, layered photo manipulation using images taken on a digital camera/from the web. Teachers will be asked to compile, edit, publish and share completed works online. The group will curate an online gallery of work completed over the course of the week. Participants will engage in planning for a unit of learning in Digital Media, individually and/or collaboratively. The cost of the workshop is €75.
