The alchemical secrets of the small-gauge to be learned include open exposure photography (which mimics double exposure), light table animation, stop motion techniques, cross fades and other tricks on the all-powerful Braun Nizo Super 8 camera (among other cameras)!
 
Participants are encouraged to come with ideas in mind and are welcome to contact the instructor in advance with questions / ideas / things they hope to learn, as this will be a collaborative learning odyssey.

No experience in filmmaking or art is necessary.

Are you interested in learning how to make stop motion animations but don’t know where to start?

Come with an idea (and props/characters) or none at all. A variety of materials and figures will be provided for you to use in your videos.

Wendy Sharpe is a painter, fibre artist, and filmmaker living and working in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
