Graeme Patterson will be guiding participants in this workshop through the process of stop-motion animation with the use of Dragon Frame software. This will include DSLR camera setup, lighting, puppet, frame by frame capturing, frame viewing and manipulation, frame processing, and finalizing animations as video files for editing. This workshop does not include time for puppet and set creation, but direction for puppet manipulation and set design will be available. We will be animating basic objects within minimal sets to allow for more time focused on learning the Dragon Frame workflow.

Hosted by Graeme Patterson

Graeme Patterson received his BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 2002. His practice stems from a self-taught method of producing stop-motion animations but has expanded into building large video/sculptural installations. These installations consist of animation, sculptural models, robotics, sound, music, and interactive elements. Graeme’s inspiration comes from a desire to constantly develop an alternate reality that stimulates reflective engagement with universal themes of longing, loss and recovery. His work has been exhibited and screened internationally including two nationally touring solo exhibitions at significant Canadian art galleries. These galleries include The Art Gallery of Hamilton, Galerie de L’UQAM, and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. Some of his recent accomplishments include the 2012 Canada Council for The Arts Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award (media arts), Atlantic finalist for the 2014 and 2009 Sobey Art Award, and a finalist for the 2010 Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Arts Award.
