The workshop is a unique opportunity to learn about what happens behind the scenes of animation, one of the most spectacular and creative genres, discovering the secrets of how a film is made through a special technique, which draws inspiration from 'work of Norman McLaren: the straightforward design of 35 mm film.

It will use the direct drawing technique on transparent film and fotogrammata 35 mm. With this technique, you can get amazing results with simple equipment and in a manner very fast. The participants receive a photocopy of the films on which will make the drawings that will be copied in a second time on 35 mm film. They will draw different lengths of 1 second (25 frames) for the creation of cyclic movements, such as in the ancient zoetropes.

The materials produced by the participants will be mounted, sonorizzati as the sole collective film, and then projected to the streets last evening of the festival.

Cartoon Club is pleased to also file in its XXXIII edition "Animated Cartoons of solidarity": a workshop aimed at children in primary schools in the province, now in its eighth edition. As experienced in previous years, some local voluntary associations come into the classroom to tell their story and their commitment, following the young students are stimulated, thanks to an animated drawing expert, the creation of cartoons describing the themes and activities of the volunteers.

Ogni classe ha così l’opportunità di produrre un’animazione (scegliendo la tecnica preferita: disegno, Cut out, plastilina, Puppets ecc…), inventando la storia e costruendola dallo Story Board fino alla fase delle riprese. In conclusione, gli alunni producono dei cortometraggi che racchiudono importanti messaggi di solidarietà e rispetto che permettono loro di sviluppare, interpretare, rielaborare in maniera creativa gli argomenti presentati, dando vita e movimento alle loro idee e nello stesso tempo imparando a conoscere le tecniche del cinema d’animazione.

The animated film is used as a teaching mediator, an instrument that can stimulate the curiosity of children who become protagonists ideation and construction of their small films. The young authors working in groups both in the elaboration of the information received by the volunteers in both the construction of a product through the cartoons. The expert and teachers as facilitators, provide some information or technical advice, but do not interfere in the development of history and the work that is edited entirely by children.

At the conclusion of the project the papers are collected in a DVD and delivered to each participant.
The films are screened during the festival on the big screen at the Novelli Theater in Rimini, during the evening of 17 July.
