Puppet Animation. Today the participants from the Children's Contest of the XXIII International Ecological TV Festival “To Save and Preserve” practiced to make animation. For many children animation is already familiar. But not everyone has experience with the puppet animation specifically.
All stages of cartoon filming, which has no name yet, Christina Mankovskaya shoots with her video camera. Scenario to the new ecological animation will be writen together. The main character has already been given a name - Cleanman.
Christina Mankovskaya, participant of the children's contest of the XXIII International Ecological TV Festival "To Save and Preserve", the city of Slantsy: “Maybe it will be a superhero-like story who protects nature. As Superman protects people, Cleanman will protect nature, the whole environment from pollution”.
Collective children's creativity at the festival “To Save and Preserve” is a good tradition. But the work shop on the technique of "Puppet animation" is held for the first time. The task of professionals is to teach children to combine live video with the movements of dolls.
Maksut Zharimbetov, head of the children's animation studio “Alakai”, Shymket, Republic of Kazakhstan: “We will try to teach children to not only animate puppet characters, but also correctly shoot, properly frame shots. And then they will still learn the lessons of installation in a program that works in reprojection, on a green background, and so on”.
The finished short animation film will screened to the participants of the festival at the ceremony of awards of the 23rd eco-forum.
Olesya Akinfeeva, participant of the XXIII International Ecological TV Festival "To Save and Preserve", Serpukhov: “We are only waiting for one thing from the festival - bright emotions. And we always get them. I love Khanty-Mansiysk very much, I love this festival very much! I’ve been to many festivals, but I love this one because there’s a special atmosphere here”.
