Edvin Susuri and Flaka Kokolli will guide the participants in the process of creating their personal beasts, whatever they may be, and making them come to life. For the first part of the workshop, the students will have the opportunity to learn about the basics of character design from Edvin, who is an accomplished animator and illustrator from Kosovo. And in the second part, they will be taught the basics of character animation by Flaka Kokolli, a Kosovar animator.
This workshop will last three days.
On the first day, you will be introduced to the concept of character design and animation. We will have a brainstorming session on how each animation created will be related to the other.
On the 2nd day, you will start with character design and be supervised the whole time by both tutors both on the character’s visual look as well as the character’s movability and mechanics.
On this day you will also develop a short storyboard on the movements your character will be making.
3rd day, you will be animating the character you’ve created on pen and paper, in play doh.
