StopTrik International Film Festival is dedicated to stop motion techniques of hand-made, spatial animation as puppet film, claymation, object or photography manipulation, animation of loose materials (such as salt, sand etc), pixilation, traditional cut-out and many more. The list of sub-genres could be complemented with such exceptional techniques as animation of lights, fire, yarns, threads. Artists' imagination is limitless and so we can be neither orthodox nor strict while defining the term "stop motion". The ultimate goal of this unique annual gathering is to admire and celebrate artistry of hand-made, spatial animation together with all the other drifters of the surreal, absurd or merry highways who are ready to pursue frame by frame illusion.

About WORKSHOT 2016:

The goal of the workshop is to inspire the participants to pay attention to precious, small and everyday things which they see but maybe do not notice. And also to feel their own bodies and their limits through "acting'' in stop-trik film that we will made during the workshops. It is a slow and sometimes tiring process but at the same time, it gives us an opportunity to break many rules, physical ones as well (gravitation, normal passing of time, linearity). It is a chance to challange the way we deal with the reality around us.

Day 1

I will show the participants various inspiring visual materials which might bring the cinematic sensation. Films are not just about the actors talking lines in a romantic or dramatic situation. 1st assignment: to bring the next day something that inspires the participants (a clip from a film, or a song, a short story, a picture... anything!). I will show the old and the new gems of animation films and explain the technique and the possibilities of stop-trik films. We will watch my works and we will talk about them.  At the end of day one, everyone gets the animation homework - a topic or a thing, part of a story or a melody to animate when they get back home.

Day 2

We watch few more films; we present inspirational pieces (20 min). We will try to figure out how previously done exercises could be improved. I will start shooting film material so the participants will get the feeling of acting in stop-trik animation. Perhaps we will use later this material. And most of the time, shooting together is incredibly fun.

Day 3

We take a look at what has been done so far, I film the participants a bit more, and we get to the editing. We put the material in the computer, search for rhythms, throw out some phases... watching the final cut, we make sound and music alive, all together, with our voices and playing on instruments and objects that are near. If nothing get wrong, we finish our animation just in time for projection.
