Pop Bottle Chickadee
Directed by Christine Fellows
2020, Canada, 2 min
This song and paper collage stop-motion video were inspired by “my backyard chickadees—they are the dolphins of the sky!—and were made using the kinds of things you might have at your house, too: toy instruments (ukulele, harp and thumb piano), old books, a pair of scissors, a camera (I used the one on my phone) and basic video-editing software. If you’d like to try making a stop-motion video of your own, all you need is an idea, a camera, and a bit of patience.”

An Isolated Day Full of Strange Isolated Events
Directed by Celeste Koon
2020, Canada, 3.5 min
Celeste escapes from the pandemic and into the world of her imagination filled with dinosaurs and chocolate cake.


GIF and Short Animation Workshops with Art City!

Using a few different online apps, you will be creating GIFs and short animations with the help of an artist from Art City. Recreate your fave GIF! Make a GIF or animation with your own face! Make an animation that rotates 360 degrees! We will start with the easier things and then get more complex over the course of the eight weeks of workshops each Sunday afternoon. You don’t have to participate in all eight weeks to learn though! We will have options for people who want to drop any week and for people who come each week to build more and more basic animation skills.

WHAT YOU NEED:

Internet access and preferably a computer or laptop, but an iPad, iPhone, or Android also work well (some apps have worked less well on androids but not usually).

ABOUT ART CITY:

Art City is a not-for-profit community art studio dedicated to providing people of all ages with innovative and professional art programming, free of charge.


This free program is presented with the support of the Province of Manitoba’s Safe at Home program. Visit safeathomemb.ca for a list of other programs available for free.

Reviews

Ranking as one of the most magical stretches of nonfiction filmmaking in recent years.
- Joey Nolfl, Entertainment weekly  
Thrilling...Aisholpan may well become something else: a pop-culture heroine with the power to inspire girls everywhere..spectacular images of the Central Asian steppes and the snow peaks that surround them.
