We love telling stories and we do love telling people how we tell stories.
Sharing our process makes us as happy as the process in itself.
We've done several workshops lately and we love to think that us and all
the beautiful people that attended had a great experience. We believe that
workshops have to be more inspirational than technique transfer. In those
workshops, we usually end up with some movies, where the attendants and us
create what we've previously shared and try to foresee what all of us, in
our own way, may achieve with some extra work.
How we like to do it
We usually begin with a short introduction of our work focused on an
animation/story exercise we've previously planned. After that we explain
the exercise, share with everyone our thoughts and doubts and finally we
all get to work. We think that a good workshop has the potential for every
one to go home with a fair and good end result, so we always find time to
briefly shoot and edit what we've all done so that everyone gets a
movie/story after all.
We've had the chance to do workshops in many different schedules, ranging
from 3 to 24 hours (spread in three days) although we can and we would
love to go even deeper and further.
Depending on how much time we get, we define an exercise so that it can be
fully done before we leave (completing our exercise doesn't generally
happens, but one way or the other something good always comes up).
