Workshop at KunstwerkstattPosted on March 12th, 2012 | By gnu | Category: Features, Photos, Videos, Workshops
Last November we organized an event at Kunstwerkstatt in Tulln, Austria, offering different workshops in various electronic art forms to young people. On the last day the results were presented to the public.
This time around, we decided to keep the workshop groups small, so people could focus better on producing a result they are happy with. We had four participants at the Tagtool workshop, all of them complete newbies on the instrument. I was surprised how good they got in just two days of training.
We started the workshop by learning the basics as well as some advanced tricks. After looking for inspiration in the archive of tagtool.org, each participant created a short storyboard. The second day we produced all the clips on two Tagtool stations with two projectors overlapping on one screen. Everything was recorded with a videocamera. For each clip, creator of the storyboard was the director of the recordings, coordinating the actions of the whole group.
Afterwards, it took me only some hours to edit the clips and add some music. I am really happy with the result: Each video has the personal handwriting of its creator and together they are a good example the various styles you can achieve with the Tagtool.
So, a big thank you to Astrid, Holger, Markus and Christoph for a most productive time. By the way, it was great fun as well! And of course thanks to our sponsor Come On – Lower Austria.
This is a short clip that sums up all the workshops of the event:
