March 29: Masterclass will focus on the production of the film THE SIREN and a description of using the Motion Capture Technology.

The focus of this masterclass will be on the feature-length animated film THE SIREN, on which a large part of the animation of the 3D characters was realised using Motion Capture technology through the Slovak company Artichoke and the animation studio Blue Faces.

The Motion Capture technology and its concrete use in the animation process will be presented by animation supervisor Tomáš Danay (Blue Faces). The masterclass will be moderated by Juraj Krasnohorský (Artichoke).
