Between handcrafting and fine watchmaking, between archaism and high technology, stop-motion animation is perhaps the most fascinating form of making animated films. Although some people announced its end with the appearance of computer-generated images, there is renewed interest in this technique that stands out for its artisanal rendering.

This is a workshop on STOP-MOTION workflows and pipelines, budgeting, production and control methods, team organisation and communication.
