Participants will be given the opportunity to create their own comic using digital images, video, sound and graphics. A combination of rotoscoping, tracing, video footage and drawn images will be combined into a number of web pages that can then be loaded into a temporary website so participants can view their work online. Interactivecomics are fun to make, can be on any topic and used by teachers and students for fun or as a work-based project.
This is a hands-on day with lots of techniques demonstrated.
