Anima– is the Latin prefix meaning “life”. Our goal is to create the illusion of life with electronic creatures of our own design. We call this art Animatronics. In this workshop, we will learn how to create our own animatronic figures which move and talk. But these are more than just robots. These are characters, each with its own personality that will be revealed as they perform in our electronic theater. If we have done our job well, we will create memorable characters that surprise and delight, that make us sad, or just make us think about things a different way.
