Peter Millard


In a world where animation is mostly created on the computer I want to bring people back to a time where all they had was wax crayons, paper and there imagination. 
Animation can be quite stressful to make when it doesn't have to be and can be as loose as possible because I believe what is most important is the energy behind the drawing which then lends itself to the movement. 
I'd like people that attend the workshop to participate in some stream of conscious writing where il give each person a piece of paper and get them to write down anything that comes in there head and force them to keep writing with no break for 2/3 minutes.  Then within that writing there should be something that can be the start of an animation.
Then id like people to make 5 drawings with their right hand then 5 drawings with their left hand.  Then a break where id get everyone to read out they’re writing into a recorder.  Then back to drawing, but this time will get participants to hold the wax crayon awkwardly for 5 drawings with there right hand, then for the last 5 simultaneously from right to left.
Il then capture all the animation on a digital camera and edit there readings into the final edit to create a mish mash of sound and will be a nice little piece to show everyone.


With the space given id like to create several basic animations of faces going across screens/projections very slowly.  Each animation will have a different mismatch sound track of classical music create an almost nightmarish atmosphere.
