This Saturday (November 25), I will be hosting a free autumn Floating Shape Workshop at Robot Inside. From 10-11:30 AM, come by to make your own flipbook or zoetrope, plus experiment with all kinds of mediums at various animation stations (drawn, claymation, cutouts). As an added bonus, November 25 is also "Small Business Saturday", and my pal Tara's RI shop is a great place to support that, with just about everything imaginable available from all sorts of local artists/crafters/makers.
What I love about these free, community events is that they are open to everyone of all ages. While FSW is primarily a children's workshop, it is always great to see entire families come and make animation together, with no upfront costs or preregistration. You can just walk in and contribute to a live animation project. Hope to see you there!
Here is a little thing I animated in honor of ASIFA's annual International Animation Day celebration coming up next weekend. Every year, children at FSW workshops have a blast taking part in this worldwide celebration by creating their own posters (sidenote: this year's official IAD poster by Noureddin & Negar Zarrinkelk is quite beautiful) and working on various projects. In fact, I have a very exciting announcement regarding Floating Shape and IAD coming up very shortly. Alas, this was really fun to make.
