A lively group experience, LineStorm
reduces the time-intensive animation process to its
essentials. From fun, inventive transition exercises
to their final sequences, participants learn a variety
of animation techniques and delight in bringing their
ideas and drawings to life. A simple computer program
edits everyone’s work into a seamless whole, synchronizing
it to sound.
can be as short as an hour, as long as 15 weeks, depending
upon your schedule and the complexity of the project.
We come to your museum, college, school or company with
a miniature animation studio, complete with traditional
and digital tools—lightboxes, pens, paper, reference
images and computer. We put the power of animation right
into your hands.
We teach your group or class all the steps to make their
ideas dance across the screen. LineStormers
work as a team to understand their topic, clarify their
concept, analyze, sketch, storyboard, draft—and
animate! LineStorm projects come alive for a wide audience
via video, DVD, websites, cable or broadcast TV.
Low cost digital technology now makes it practical to
produce and assemble a highly controlled Digital Flipbook
project, using inexpensive materials like index cards
and fiber point pens, a low-end laptop computer and
digital camera. Examining a Flipbook and comparing its
physical and digital states helps students understand
the concise underlying structure of time-based art,
computer programs, and the connection of sequential
elements in processes and systems great and small. When
created collaboratively and encoded in the computer,
Digital Flipbooks form a powerful learning tool, presenting
images and ideas first to the animators, then to a wide
audience via DVD or the internet.
