Addressed mainly to adults, this open workshop proposes to start out from the WHAT to reach the HOW. That is, contrary to most workshops –which focus on teaching how to use certain tools or techniques- the main issue here is our original concept (the story we want to tell with dots and lines). We’ll then think of the most appropriate tool to realize it.
This workshop call for participation, invites people to bring their own tools for the realization of a dotline short film. Firstly, we’ll do several analog and digital exercises to explore our capability of abstraction; then, we’ll talk about what "dot" and "line" mean for the workshop teachers (we’ll screen our own dotline material...), we’ll throw some starting points and ideas and then, we’ll get down to work! Attendants can use the tools they already had in mind or get acquainted with other tools brought by the teachers or other attendants. Ink on toilet paper, code programming, crayons and markers, colored lights, custom software... all tools and techniques are welcome.
