So we met in September in Anklam and spent three great days where the children could finish their films they started in June. This online – offline combination was really great.

New workshop film finished. This time Hansel and Gretel. You don’t have to understand German I think:
This film was realized with children around the age of 8 and 9 during a stop motion workshop in Berlin. In five days the children built the set and wrote the screenplay. One month later another group of children of the same age worked on the animation, the songs and sound design.
And for me it was the first time to edit in Lightworks. It worked well and was fun.
