The "Let’s integrate and animate!" workshop is a unique event focused on the creation of an animation movie. There is equal access to it for everyone, and the language of animation movies are understandable for everybody regardless of culture, background, age or skills. Education, place of living, being disabled or able-bodied – none of these factors matter. The workshop’s only prerequisite is that the applicants are hot-headed and ready to use their hearts, hands, feet or mouths to model, paint, and draw.

The workshop is offered to those who want and need to express themselves through art. The materials will comprise flour, salt, bread, paints, crayons etc. During the workshop you will learn what the production stages are, how to prepare scenarios, storyboards, and layout. You will be involved in drawing, scanning and composing and also doing montage and scoring. Your mentors will be the artists from the famous Miniature Film Studio from Warsaw. During the workshop you will create your own animation movie! Let’s integrate and animate!

Language of the Workshop: English

Target group:

  • 9 people physically disabled
