PUTTING TOGETHER MOVIES IN THE RAINFOREST
We proudly present: "The Revenge of the Fish", the first animation video by indigenous inhabitants of the Amazon rainforest!
Location: AMAZONICA Academy in Yuwints, Shuar territory, Ecuador
Production time: 14 days in August 2013
Filmmakers: Young villagers who took part in the
workshop of the Media Department of the University of Applied Sciences OWL.
Occasion: AMAZONICA summer school, study by Professor Christoph Althaus with a group of students from Lemgo. They had various tasks in the context of their theses for the Bachelor's degree. Carolin and Alice held an "A+" workshop for the production of animated films.
Production: Collecting materials from nature, drawing, painting, cutting, tinkering... but how can we set the objects in motion?
By moving them for each shot: 25 frames per second!
And then by editing on the laptop, adding audio and text, and doing small corrections until 4:00 in the morning – until shortly before the jungle premiere.
So easy! So fantastic!
