Rotoscoping Animation Workshop
Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS)
Instructor: Iveta Karpathyova
January 27th 2018 


I had the big pleasure of teaching traditional animation workshop at TAIS, where I created a 4-hour class on the technique of rotoscoping. The workshop provided a historical introduction to rotoscope animation, strategies for visual music, and an overview on using it both as a hand-drawn and digital technique. The students learned how to animate realistic action using live-action footage as a base, methods for achieving smooth movement and transitions, as well as pre and post production in Adobe After Effects. The outcome of this hands-on studio class as a 14 second animated dance to Frank Ocean's "Pink + White", to which each student contributed two seconds.
