This workshop on the use of the Tagtool application offers an incursion into the fascinating world of video mapping! …The what? Video mapping is a technique for projecting moving images onto objects, or adorning a building or wall with animated light murals!

With the free Tagtool vector animation app, youngsters will learn how to animate characters, shapes and objects, and project them onto large surfaces to create impressive and unique videos. The application’s simplicity fosters the emergence of creativity and enables the creation of satisfying and impressive animations in a short timespan.

Using an electronic tablet and Cateater’s free Stop Motion application, children can easily create animated films frame by frame, in just a few simple steps. Quiet on set! is an enriching experience for young people who want to discover the world of animated film and invent stories in pictures.
