Drawing on Film Animation Workshop

For young people ages 6-16 and the creatively curious at-heart. 

Join us for a lively workshop where we will collectively make a handmade animated film without using a camera. Participants will draw directly onto clear 16mm film to create colorful dancing abstractions of lines and shapes on celluloid. The results will be spliced together and projected on the Tusten Theatre screen at the end of the workshop.

Limited to 30 places (kids under 12 should be accompanied by an adult).. $5 per person. Please book in advance. Duration 90 minutes.

James Layton is Manager of the Museum of Modern Art’s Film Preservation Center in Hamlin, Pennsylvania.Crystal Kui is Associate Producer at Undercrank Productions, a home video label specializing in silent film restoration. 

James and Crystal are a husband and wife team who published the books The Dawn of Technicolor: 1915–1935 and King of Jazz: Paul Whiteman’s Technicolor Revue, and Film Atlas, a forthcoming online encyclopedia of film technology.
