Animate with Creative Coding

Creative Workshops

21 Jun 2014

Create beautiful experimental animations using free software and computer code inspired by Norman McLaren’s evocative art. To coincide with the retrospective being presented by the Melbourne International Animation Festival, we pose and answer the question, what is experimental animation today?

  • Participants will use the free open source software Processing, a creative coding platform, to develop unique, original and interactive animations. Created by Massachusetts Institute of Technology, students Ben Fry and Casey Reas, Processing  is the perfect introduction to creating code for non-programmers.

    The workshop will cover the basics and allow plenty of time to experiment with newly learned skills. You will leave with the confidence and capacity to design increasingly complex animations using this exciting contemporary tool.

    Ticket prices include a USB to take home files and resources.

    Tickets must be purchased in advance. In the event of a workshop cancellation, ticket holders will be notified directly and a full refund will be provided. For more information please contact
