(projections, presentations, exhibition, workshop)
Rotoscopy represents a hybrid cinematographic form developed by American animator Max Fleisher in 1915. He intended to capture individual phases of motion in animation more precisely. For these purposes he decided to redraw the individual frames of a film strip on a glass board. This technique, which lies on the boundaries of animation and photorealistic record, has been improved through the years and through it many filmmakers have significantly contributed to the history of animation. This year's Festival of Film Animation introduces rotoscopy within the PAF Rewind section through selected films, lectures and a workshop.
Concerning feature films, spectators can look forward to a historical cross-section of American Pop as well as the current Czech film Alois Nebel. The filmmakers will speak about the film within the presentation of Tobogang graphic studio. The teacher and artist Pavel Ryška will give a lecture on the history of rotoscopy and there will also be a rotoscopy workshop under the leadership of animators.
