Had the most terrific turnout at last weekend's Floating Shape animation workshop at the Taft Museum of Art. I'm grateful to the Taft for having me and allowing me access to their great facilities (including the large widescreen w/ HDMI, perfect for doing live animation exercises). We did a collaborative, cutout animation project (with each child creating detailed backgrounds based on pieces inspired by the museum's collection). We also looked at examples of zoetropes and other non-film animation. It was a blast and I look forward to doing another there in the future. Below are some pictures of the workshop as well as the video of the animation we made.
