Creating Animated Worlds - Joseph Wallace Masterclass
Venue: Jonathan Swift Theatre, Arts Building, Trinity College Dublin
Time: 9am-4pm
Supported by Screen Skills Ireland & Dublin City Arts Office

This thorough and inspiring day-long masterclass will give practitioners the opportunity to hear from internationally acclaimed animation director Joseph Wallace about his unique approach to creating puppet animation films. The class will focus on the creation, development and execution of animated films, exploring how to develop ideas, how to create an intriguing world, how to tell a compelling story and how to find an audience.

Through a discussion and dissection of the production of short films to music videos, Joseph will share industry insight into creating cinematic films from humble materials, taking designs from two to three dimensions as well as materials and methodologies. Joseph will also advise about finding success with films online and at festivals and how to build a release strategy. The masterclass will be a mixture of lecture; process breakdowns, technical explanations; screenings of works and Q&A.

This class is open to all animators and aimed at industry professionals, graduates and students working in or aspiring to work in the field of animation and particularly stop motion and puppet animation. Attendees might also be puppeteers, artists, theatre-makers, sculptors, etc, who want to expand their practice. Joseph Wallace has given talks and held workshops at institutions and universities around the world including the British Film Institute, Animac Festival, Spain, Arts and Ideas Festival, USA and Manchester Animation Festival.

The general admission price is 50 euro and for students it is 25 euro. Tickets are available through Silk Road International Film Festival (Limited tickets available, early booking recommended)
