Times: 10.00 to 14.00 / 16.00 to 20.00
Participants: maximum of 8

Based on the Odradek, a creature that appears in France Kafka's story The Cares of a Family Man, the workshop will consist of making a particularly experimental collective film to enhance the hybridisation of a wide variety of animation techniques: stop motion on every level, the analogical manipulation of stills, the cartoon and the collage, etc. In short, processes that enable the exploration of one's own expressive and, to a certain extent, unexpected resources using a minimum infrastructure.

The workshop will combine sessions in which shorts will be viewed to help assimilate and understand the potential of the proposal. The screenings will be preceded by a short presentation by the author on context and the technique used.
