“Points and lines” – stereoscopic experiments on multiplane

Animation was seen for a very long time as a place for graphic play with time mostly done at multiplane. Stereoscopy images have very long tradition in photography as well as in animation movies. However it was always screened at flat screen. Virtual Reality based on 3D animation. Is it possible to implement traditional multiplan animation to stereoscopic VR? At the masterclass Wiola Sowa is going to show some experiments that explore the topic.

Working with children

About forty years ago some young animators in Austria started teaching animation to children, helding workshops in schools and youth centers in cooperation with ASIFA Austria and the artist run space Masc Foundation. This was the origin of the later created ASIFA/AWG work with children and youths. Their workshops are usually run through five days, including film screens, script, storyboard, different animation techniques and sound work. The result is a 5-7min animated short and proud children. The ASIFA/AWG team members present at MONSTRA 2020 will be speaking of these workshops which have been happening for over 25 years.
