In addition to commissions for films and illustrations I also give lectures and workshops. Below are a some examples of workshops that I’ve given.

Workshop in Skopje, Macedonia

I gave a three day workshop in Skopje, along with a launch in Macedonia for my picture book ”Elsa and the Night”. This workshop was titled ”Build a world in three days” – and was similar to a previous workshop I gave in Kiehl, Germany (see below…) The idea is to build a set in front of a camera using various tricks such as forced perspective to make it look like a vast landscape. And then the group will animate a change in this scenery – going from nighttime and winter to daytime and summer in this case.

      

After three very intense days,  working with a diverse group of people – this was the end result:

Workshops at ”STDH”/”Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts”

I occasionally teach at the Bachelor program for Animation at the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts. This photo is from a workshop enigmatically titled ”Abstract lipsync”. The objective was to match stop motion animation with prerecorded soundclips in a playful way:

The students produced some really neat films, in my opinion. Four examples below:

Films made by (left to right): Karin Drake, Sarah Gampel, Mimi Fürst and Julia Helander.

 

Workshop at ”Muthesius Kunsthuchschule” in Kiel

This workshop was titled ”Build a world in a week” – A group of 20 students from various programmes including photography, fine art and graphic design spent a week building up a landscape in one of the school’s studios. They then animated a seasonal change – from winter to summer – within that landscape.
