I participated in a “low-tech” animation workshop yesterday and this is what we made.

Hans Gindlesberger was a guest artist at UW-Parkside yesterday. He ran a workshop where art students used their iPhone cameras, Photoshop, and After Effects to animate drawings and photocopies.  Hans showed up for the workshop with a bunch of photocopies he had pulled from Flickr showing Empire Nevada, a town which is no longer a town. It recently had its zip code revoked. Each group made its own section of the film and we just linked them all together. It turned out pretty poetic even though we didn’t have time for editing. Music by James Passannante.

    It’s beautiful! I think I’d like to “collaborate” my ENGL 310 class with a 2D studio/mixed media class to create visual objects like this for pairing with a reading of the written works my students labor[ed]. It could be a mini show.

    And that’s how I know this video is successful–it influences, it yields.

    • I think we should figure out some away next year to get your classes connected with another animation workshop we will be running. I will collaborate with you on this. Also I think Amy Missorelli-Sorenson who teaches drawing would love to work with you on this!
