These workshops combine the technique of hand-drawn animation (on paper, carbon paper, glass and other materials) with the technique of filmmaking directly on film stock. For participants, it will be a unique opportunity to learn about traditional filmmaking technology and to display effects of their work with the use of an analog projector.
KinoMANUAL is a small, independent audio-visual manufacture, involved in experimenting with moving pictures and sound. It explores primarily analog techniques of stop-motion film, such as hand-drawn animation, cutout, drawn-on-film animation, utilizing a physical contact with material applied. KinoMANUAL is created by two artists: Aga Jarząb and Maciek Bączyk. Their jointly made films and objects want to correspond with the deep-rooted tradition of moving pictures, cinematic art and experimental cinema. KinoMANUAL cooperates with international artists and cultural institutions, producing animated motion design. It also runs animated film workshops for children, young people and adults.
