Steven Vander Meer

Steven will show Dancing With Scissors, his 2018 daily animation project - he added one second of animation every day for one year, so yeah it's 365 seconds long.

Following that, a demonstration on making simple hand drawn animations on an iPad using Rough Animator and other apps. Particular attention will be on how to transition smoothly out of and back into the Black Dot.

About Our Gatherings

At each gathering, one artist will do a presentation of their work, followed by open discussion. This is a great way to see what other artists are up to, learn about different kinds of animation techniques, and most importantly - get inspired to do your own work. Gatherings also provide artists with time to socialize in real life, exchange ideas and get answers to those pesky technical questions.

Presentation Guidelines

There is no "membership" to this group, anyone can attend, and any artist who is actively working on a project that includes animation can present. If you have a project in mind but have not actually begun work yet, please wait until it's underway before presenting. Presentations of previously completed works will be accepted as well, but priority will always be given to those with current works-in-progress.

If you would like to present your work, please come to a gathering and talk to Steven.
