Event is open on ANIMARKT platform.
How to design characters for a puppet animated film? How can the art design of the hero be transformed into a technical design of a puppet? How to construct the puppet that will be able to move and act on the set as well as meet the director's expectations and not make it difficult work for the animator? Moreover, how to not exceed the budget?
This masterclass will give us a closer look to all the technological issues of building a puppet, including the selection of the technique of its production based on the requirements of the script / storyboard and planned art design.
