STOP MOTION WORKSHOP

In addition to our show at the ECHO PARK FILM CENTER on February 20th, we will be hosting a Stop Motion Workshop Sunday the 21st at 11AM. Our instructor is GI JOE FEST 2007 winner Jeff Gurwood.

The Stop Motion Workshop will offer the opportunity to develop both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to create a piece of stop-motion animation. The course aims to stimulate students' abilities to generate an overall perspective of a project - from concept to final product. Tuition is $20 dollars.


Here is a sample of Jeff's work: LAST RANDY STANDING
