11/12/13th of May 2015 by Moviemiento e.V.


In the last stop of cinetrain Workshop for Educators, Alessandro, Benjamin and Amrei will give an insight into the world of animated images. Animation means looking at the world with a new pair of glasses, and see how easily stories can bloom out of everyday objects, different materials or simply changing the perspective.

The participants will experiment with different techniques as stop-motion, pixelation or the basics of digital animation. Besides, we will go through experiences and methods of running workshops and aim to stimulate an exchange of ideas with the participants.

We will have a look at all steps till the final animations. Focussing on the creation, with a glimpse on the pre- and post-production. We’ll discover different materials, and how the choice of a specific material can influence the animation and lead to unexpected results and solutions.

The participants will also learn the software basics, and how to handle multiple devices (cameras, smartphones, tablets), to be able to capture they animated stories in every context.

We ask you to bring a simple personal object to the workshop, which might describe/represent yourself somehow. We’ll see which stories it can tell us about you!

Directly at the edge of the river Spree, where the Berlin Party crowd used to dance until early morning hours to the sound of wild electronic beats, the housing project Spreefeld Berlin (SFB) has been established.
SFB is a building and housing association of currently 60 members, which builds three housing complexes with collaborative living areas at Köpenicker Straße 48/49. These living spaces will be used in horizontally as well as in vertically organized part-neighborhoods in 20 housing units. Furthermore, parts of the buildings on the ground floor should be used as business space for shops, handicraft or services with collaborative purposes and contents, which support the direct contact between Spreefeld and its surroundings.
To guarantee a sustainably budget-conscious and resource-saving process in and after the construction phase, all houses are planned as passive houses.
Two thirds of the cooperative property stay untilled and are reserved for public use, for example the boat house with a public terrace or the so called “Spreeacker”, which can be used for growing.
Spreefeld Berlin is a project which is initiated to support the community and solidarity for future residents and the closer surrounding, while acting economically and ecologically sustainable.
