Our second installment of RAT TRAP, took place on Saturday July 20h, 2013. At these monthly drop-in workshops, we take a look at a featured animation technique and give a chance for anyone to come in and spend some time playing around with it, and to make some animation with other enthusiastic folks! Sessions are led by experienced animators and enthusiasts and are a great way to generate ideas or to whet your animation appetite.
This second workshop was a free for all drawing party inspired by the works of Winsor McCay. A Canadian born artist who brought to the world "Little Nemo in Slumberland", and an animator with a technical level of animation unmatched until Walt Disney in the 1930's and techniques that became a standard, with "Gertie the Dinosaur" and "The Sinking of the Lusitania". Participants also played around with some basic roto-scoping techniques utilizing a whiteboard as their medium.
