bi'bakwerk works with innovative site specific education concepts, which aim at an equal participation and the exchange of ideas, knowledge and creativity. Our workshops are cross-generational and focus on issues arising from the immediate neighborhood.
This workshop focuses on how documentary and animation can be used and mixed creatively in filmmaking. Tomáš Doruška and A. Nazli Kaya, a duo whose films have been featured in numerous film festivals including Annecy, IDFA and BFI, will share their practice of stop motion animation techniques in a hands-on way.
Participants are encouraged to bring ideas that may include but are not limited to the following themes: migration, social and political justice, culture and environmental issues. Together we will discuss your ideas for mini-shorts (max. 7 shots each) before finally choosing 3 ideas to be realized.
