2020 Carmel Film Forum:
Stop Motion Animation Celebration

The 2020 Carmel Film Forum: Stop Motion Animation Celebration webinar will be hosted by the Carmel Clay Public Library on June 20 and 27. The webinar is FREE and will consist of two sessions.


The first session will be held on June 20, 2020, from 2 pm to 4 pm. It will be co-hosted by James E. Moriarty from Moriarty Media and Sara O'Sha CCPL's Audiovisual Services Supervisor. The webinar will feature professional animator, Lisa Barcy, streaming from Chicago, who will teach stop motion animation techniques employing drawing, paper cut-outs, and 3D objects.


The participants will be encouraged to make an animated clip, using the techniques demonstrated in the program, and upload their clips to be judged. The winner will receive a license to a copy of the Dragonframe professional stop motion animation software, a $300 value.

Session two will be held on Saturday, June 27, 2020, from 2 pm to 4 pm. Lisa Barcy will announce the winner of the contest. All animated clips will have been edited into a musical montage for screening. The winning clip will be shown in its entirety. A retrospective of Lisa Barcy's animation work will be screened. A Q&A with Lisa will be conducted after her screening.

Participants can register at carmelclaylibrary.org. Once registered, a webinar link will be emailed to the participant, along with a program/curriculum, list of the tools, software, and supplies they will need for the workshop. Seats for the webinar are FREE but limited.
