Join us in the Media Lab  to explore the art of rotoscoping! Rotoscoping is an animation technique that allows filmmakers to add special effects to live action. Well known examples include Tame Impala’s music video, Feels Like We Only Go Backwards. Using frames and footage from video or film, young artists can modify, transform, and create brand new and unique animations. By tracing, painting, and digitally coloring each individual frame of footage, the class will explore the creative potential of combining live-action film and animation. Students will work on individual explorations and collaborate with other young artists on a group project(s).
