We have a new program for students in Grades 2-7. Building on the success of our popular Reel Focus program, we have added workshops. You may attend a feature film – and now you also have the option of staying for the whole day and taking a workshop. As always, films are accompanied by a film study guide that is distributed before the festival, and a discussion follows the screening.

Add a workshop:

Light in Motion
Instructor: Cindy Mochizuki
Glow, sparkle and shine with artist Cindy Mochizuki and learn how to create a short animation using only light. Participants will use digital point-and-shoot cameras to take long exposure images that can be crafted into stop motion images that give the illusion that the light is effortlessly flying through the air.
April 18 & 19 at the Vancity Theatre
10:00 – 11:30am
12:30 – 2:00pm

Constructing a Scene
Instructor: Carolyn Combs
This workshop is designed for the budding writer, director or actor who wants to make a film, or those who are just curious about how the pros do it. How are films made? In small groups, participants will collaborate on a scene including scriptwriting, rehearsing, blocking, designing the shots… then actually shooting that prep! Students will walk away with the skills to construct their own scene.
Wednesday, April 18 at the Vancity Theatre
10:00 – 11:30am
12:30 – 2:00pm

Animation Exclamation!
Instructor: Amy Lockhart
Through demonstrations, instructional handouts and hands-on activities, students will learn how to make jointed paper puppets, using Amy Lockhart’s trademark techniques. The workshop will focus on drawn and object animation- cut outs, beads and feathers… You can animate anything that can fit under a camera! Using paper cut outs, we’ll begin with a short demonstration of the five types of movement (acceleration, deceleration, constant, hold and irregular) and other basic principles, such as stretch and squash. This workshop promises to give students an understanding of basic animation techniques.
