We propose the realisation of a stop-motion animation, turning the Dot and the Line into scenic elements. For this, we’ll use various translucent and reflective surfaces and matte materials, light sources, filters and volumetric objects.
We’ll videotape and photograph the obtained imagery and record sounds produced by the children and the various objects featured in the animation. And finally, we will edit the material in a short-film format.
In order to boost ideas and see some examples of the use of Dots & Lines in stop-motion animation, we will begin by watching a few of the films in the Abstract Animation for family audiences section.
