One of the key objectives of the festival is to encourage and inspire the creativity of children through cinema.
The Athens International Children’s Film Festival is offering filmmaking workshops for children ages 5+ years old, using a variety of techniques. The workshops will be taught by professionals in small groups of 15 people, with 2 educators per group.
The children will have an opportunity to discover and experience the basic stages and techniques of shooting a stop-motion animation film.
In the beginning, they will experiment with 3 different techniques: clay animation, object animation and special effects.
They will then shoot a stop-motion animation film against a Green Screen, and add then enrich the scene in editing by replacing the Green Screen with visual effects.
They will finally complete their film by recording their own voices for the film and adding music and sound effects.
