Camera-etc organizes workshops for children, teenagers and adults.
These activities allow the group to make an animated film in a collective way, by participating in each step: scenario, making characters, creating sets, shooting and recording of the soundtrack.
During school holidays, Camera-etc organizes workshops for children and teenagers in its studios. In a week, the group makes an animation film in a collective way, using one or more traditional animation techniques.
Weekly workshop for adults
This workshop is open to people wishing to try animation movies. In 20 sessions, from October to June, participants will experiment with one or more traditional animation techniques to create a collective animation short film, based on an existing scenario. An opportunity to combine pleasure, creativity, learning and artistic expression, in a spirit of encounter and discovery!
Our short films can serve as a starting point for discussion on different themes. Contact us for more information!
