CHARCOAL, MIND MOVES & MOVIES is a 2 day workshop with Jo Lane introducing you to animation principles and application with drawing. Charcoal animations form the basis of the workshop and it will take drawing a step beyond a 2 dimensional single drawing into movement and storytelling.
Animating charcoal drawings exposes its dynamism and its ability to communicate: bringing a drawing ‘to life’ says something else with regard to movement, space and condition in a different way to than a still drawing can. The base skill is drawing at its core and in its primal form – charcoal. You will be shown differing analysis of how movement and stories can be powerfully portrayed using charcoal and paper only, through understanding of animation principles. By the end of the workshop you will have made 2 animations (one simple, one more complex) and be able to execute charcoal animations into video files.
