Augment Your Art: Part 1 w/ Andrei Feheregyhazi
Tuesday, November 12th, 7pm
AKA/PAVED Arts Event Space
Part 1: Basics of digital animation and video creation using adobe creative cloud.
Participants will bring a piece of 2D artwork they would like to add animation or video to, then over the course of the workshop learn the basics of Adobe Photoshop, After effects, and Premiere and create a companion video/ layered video to add to the piece. This can be done using animation or recorded video.
Andrei Feheregyhazi‘s Biography: My work as a filmmaker, animator and visual artist has been shaped by the three decades I have spent in Saskatoon and the exposure I’ve had to theatre and the other arts from a very young age. I was fortunate enough to experience the many aspects of theatre watching my father Tibor Feheregyhazi bring to life play after play on the stage of Persephone Theatre. It has been very influential in my formation as an artist. Because of this, I have learned a deep appreciation for the audience and community as the most important aspect of any work of art.
For me the “Art” happens when an audience engages with a piece, and it is that relationship that eclipses whatever relationship the artist has with the work.
While I have been exposed to theatre, dance and music, I discovered early on that I am a visual person. I took the lessons I learned while watching my father and developed a unique style of animation that has captivated the attention of people of all ages around the world. A style that combines paper cutouts, stop motion, and at times artwork and illustrations from artists circling the globe. It is a style that is unique yet lends itself to use the work of many to create a uniform final product. My work has been nominated for music video awards, shown on television networks around the world and featured in film festivals in Canada and abroad.
For the last couple years I have been exploring and experimenting with combining augmented reality with prints, paintings and sculptures in order to create artistic experiences in which people can lose themselves. I’ve also found it leads to a collaborative art experience. People work together with the art to make a piece that is uniquely theirs. I hope to make more collaborative art experiences for this and into the future.
