Sand Animation Workshop
with Paper Panther Productions
Sand animation entails moving sand frame by frame on a lightbox situated beneath the camera. Animating with sand is a unique and rewarding experience for the animator. As a medium, it lends itself well to loose animation. The fine textures of the sand interact beautifully with the light.
The course is aimed at anyone who has an interest in animation. No previous experience is necessary, though it might be of particular interest to filmmakers and visual artists.
