Movement which does not exist
Animation is an amazing power. The motion we observe only because of the passivity of our visual comprehension can capture us even more than reality. We are going to find out how it works.

Since the moment of its appearance in the first half of XIX century, animation has become the field for experiments. Thus, 12 principles of Disney animation appeared and we are going to deal with them.

The participants will be able to create animated motion and find out how other people perceive the same pictures (in order to see this we are going to ask participants from other projects to fil in special questionnaries).

If you are interested in how to make a stone flow or bend and how different people see it thanks to the power of animation, welcome to our team on the project "Movement which does not exist. Power of animation and its influence on our perception".

Maria Kogan-Lerner

Moscow, Russia
Mary believes in such a superpower – to animate everything you can see, or reach, or touch! Right after leaving her school, she found out that this ability is not an inborn one, but you can obtain it. After that there have been years of experiments, several films and a lot of experience for her. And she finds it very important to make all lines and objects so alive that the viewer believes in them! Every day a stop-motion animation artist deals with such challenges as how to make a wire speak, how to create jelly out of soap and make paper snow. What is more, Mary likes discovering the magic of animation to those who don't know how it works, because it stimulates new ideas! Mary was a tutor of animation project for IRS-5 and is eager to come back!
