The workshop revolves around the principle that the human eye can perceive a series of slightly different static images as an optical illusion of motion. Kids of all ages, young adults and their families are welcome for a two-day introduction to a variety of moving image techniques, from pre-cinematic devices to today's GIF applications for the internet and the social media. Participants of all ages, through creative collaboration, will experiment and create optical toys in order to explore the boundaries between photography and cinema.
