Even this year, PAF was invited to participate in the programme of the well known multi-genre festival LUHOVANÝ VINCENT. At the end of June, the Luhačovice colonnades were brightened up by a PAF dramaturge Jiří Neděla. He held a talk on a specific animation technique – the so called rotoscoping.
The multi-genre festival Luhovaný Vincent took place in Luhačovice from Thursday 26 to Sunday 29 June 2014.
Rotoscoping is a hybrid cinematographic form developed by an American animator Max Fleischer in 1915. Fleischer's intention was to capture particular fazes of movement in animated films more accurately. Therefore, he decided to redraw the footage frame by frame as it was projected on a glass panel. This technique, dwelling on the border of animation and photorealistic footage, has been improved by a number of filmmakers who therefore made a significant contribution to the history of animated film. Supervised by Jiří Neděla, the tenth annual year of Festival of Film Animation (PAF 2011) covered the technique of rotoscoping in bigger detail.
