On May 22, 2011 the Cartoonist Conspiracy San Francisco and the Cartoon Art Museum Bookstore will be kicking off the third year of CAM-JAM’s, cartoonist collaboration events. The CAM-JAM’s have tried different themes in the past such as Tikis and Samurais, but this time we will go with something a bit more challenging…Animation. With a mix of old school drawing goodness and desk top video technology we will attempt to collaborate and create 30 seconds of animation within the length of the event from 11am to 5pm.
Will you come and join us?
When: Sunday May 22, 2011
11am to 5pm
Where: Cartoon Art Museum - 655 Mission St San Francisco CA
Cost: FREE for participating artists
The event will feature attempts at…
- Wipe Board animation – filmed with a digital camera and stop motion software artist will create animation by drawing on that office favorite the wipe board.
- “sketchbook” animation – inspired by the technique used on the short film “Nosy Bear” animation is created by small drawings on a few pages that are then composite digitally.
- Samples of animation by local artists
Our hope is that cartoonist and artist of all caliber will join in the fun and help create animation on-the-spot.
