We have been working hard on the workshop Zoetropia for the past few months. Developed for Cinekid and international partners in Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Greece and Belgium.
During this workshop children will make a journey through the history of special effects in a playful way. A journey through scale models, green screen set-ups and camera-, body- and face tracking scenes. In this one-hour workshop, children re-enact scenes from existing films (provided by the various partners) and learn how different special effects techniques are used in films.
After the workshop, a film montage is created in which the children see themselves in different scenes. Here is the final sketch we shot in our own studio. Still not quite the final version because we are still missing some small things. The leads are played by Renee, Vivian and Lou.
