This workshop proposes the realization of individual and/or collective flipbooks exploring various narratives using only dots, lines and colors as characters.

The originals will be exhibited during the festival at the CCCB in Barcelona. Once the event is finished, the authors are welcome to retrieve them.

A flipbook is a book with a series of pictures that vary gradually from one page to the next, so that when the pages are turned rapidly, the pictures appear to animate by simulating motion or some other change. Like motion pictures, flipbooks rely on persistence of vision to create the illusion that continuous motion is being seen rather than a series of discontinuous images being exchanged in succession.
