In direct animation, a century-old camera-less form, artists use painting, scratching and myriad techniques not recommended by manufacturers to animate on motion picture film. It is an analog art that offers experiential escape from increasingly digital visual cultures. In this intensive hands-on class students will practice numerous methods of direct animation, have opportunities to invent their own techniques and create lots of footage in a short time, while studying genre masters like Len Lye, Norman McLaren, and Barbel Neubauer. For final presentations students will explore analog and digital methods for presenting their work in a grand, celebratory projection performance extravaganza.
