Local animator teaches workshop for children

A local filmmaker will teach the fundamentals of animation during a weekend workshop that will give students the chance to premier a short film at the Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival in January.

Ariana Cardenas of Ariflower Images in Grass Valley has taught the workshop for three years. The short course covers basic concepts from building a set to shooting and editing a film.

After the weekend workshop, students schedule 10 hours of individual time at Cardenas’ studio in July for shooting and editing.

The theme of this year’s class film will be, “Ten ways to create a sustainable environment.” Each student’s short will be part of a longer class film which will be presented at the film festival.

The weekend workshop costs $165 and will take place at the South Yuba River Citizens League from 2 to 4 p.m. on June 23 and 24.

The workshop is available to children ages five and older. Adults are also welcome.
