Animation and special effects workshops

Our animation classes are aimed to appeal to every age group from 5 to 100! Participants can interact with film media not only as viewers of finished product, but also as creators. In one-hour session it is possible to become familiar with the classical method of animation using paper drawings or experiment with animating puppets on a set. Drawings, puppets and sets will be provided.

In a two-hour session it is possible to film animations using original drawings and simple puppets made in our studio. If you are able to stay for a whole-day session (made up of 2 or more two-hour sessions), there is enough time to work out a script and shoot a short film. Even those who can only afford to stay for one hour can experience and be inspired by three different animation techniques, though we cannot always ensure that our joint efforts will be rewarded with a prize-winning film!

Whatever you chose, you can always take inspiration from three of Zeman's films: “Journey to the Beginning of Time”, “The Fabulous World of Jules Verne” and “The Stolen Airship”. How you respond to these atmospheric films is entirely up to you. You are the script-writer, the director and the masters of special effects!

Our workshops are run by experienced teachers, graduates of the school of animation of the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague and professional animators from film studios, members of the association Ultrafun, whose workshops have proven so popular during the Anifest animated film festival.
