One workshop session intended for elementary school pupils, especially from the first to the fourth grade. This children-friendly and simple workshop will introduce pupils to the nature of the optical principles, which form the basis for the perception of moving images – i.e. filmmaking. The Basics of Film Animation will explain the function of classical animation, show various optical inventions from the 19th century and figure out what puzzled the pioneers of cinema in its early days.
The workshop is two hours long; the lecturers will first introduce the principle of one of the four optical inventions / toys: thaumatrope, phenakistoscope, zoetrope and a flipbook. The children will have the opportunity to try out these simple toys – and also learn how to create them under the guidance of our lecturers.
Following the consultations with the lecturers, we will gladly recommend a suitable topic of the workshop with regard to the age and experience of the class concerned.
