Turning Opera de Lille Into A Dollhouse

Last week was spectacular. It was also so intense that after getting back home I’ve been down with a cold whole week. But nevertheless I’m so proud of the work we did last week in Lille in France. I’m excited that I’m able to share how the week went by in my workshop & travel vlog I uploaded to my Youtube channel Elli Maanpää Art.

During the 4-day workshop we created animation to project on the wall of the Opera de Lille. The showtime of the video mapping was last Friday at 9PM as a part of the Fête de l’anim. You can watch the whole video mapping on this video filmed by Daniel Derg – since I chose to show only our part in my vlog to keep it short and snappy.

There were 50 students and professionals from Europe and Asia taking part on the workshop. My group “The Roomies” – me (Turku Arts Academy), Thomas Van Fucht (Howest), Leonardo Altieri (CSC Turin) and Elena Sorrentino (CSC Turin) – turned the Opera De Lille into a Circus themed dollhouse.

I did three illustrations and animations: Cannon Lady, Clown and Lion. I worked with Illustrator, Photoshop and After Effects. You can see my work here in these looping gif’s. I really loved working in this method. Which character you like the best?

As Viborg this week was one to remember. Thank you Euranim and Turku Arts Academy for making it happen!

Video Mapping In Viborg

Couple of weeks ago I had a chance to participate in a Video Mapping Workshop in Viborg Denmark. Here’s my video documentation from the trip.

The workshop was organized by Euranim. It’s an European project that involves 6 animation schools around Europe. The hosting school for this workshop was The Animation Workshop in Viborg Denmark.

Our lead guru to the magical world of Video Mapping was Tamás Zador from Hungary. Also Lasse Andersen from Denmark englightened us with his video mapping works. The wonderful hostess and coordinator Lana Tankosa Nikolic from TAW made us feel welcomed.

In this workshop there were 13 students participating. We formed 3 groups and each group made 1 minute 52 second long animation. The building Arsenal (in the picture below) was divided to three sections and every group got one section. My group had the left side of the building.

The week was wonderful: exhausting and inspiring. I learned so much. I’m super thankful of the experience. Thank you Euranim and Turku Arts Academy!
