On the 18th of may I’ll be giving a workshop during the World Expo in Shanghai, at the ‘Don’t Believe the Type’ festival.
‘Don’t Believe the Type’ is a one day typographic festival, initiated by Dutch design agency Trapped in Suburbia. This year it will be held on the 18th of May in Shanghai and
will focus on the typographic excellence from The Hague.
This day will be packed with workshops, lectures and visual excitement provided by Underware, Yomar Augusto, Rogier Wieland and Trapped in Suburbia.
Handmade typographic music video
A workshop for twenty participants working together to produce a handmade typographic music video in one day.
Using only analog media (and a digital still camera), we’re going to make a typographic music video for a brand new song by Dutch singer/songwriter Wotienke. She will write and record the song especially for this occasion.
Each participant produces his own part of the music video by animating typographic elements, without a computer. That means 25 frames per second, all handmade! We're going to focus mainly on adding “life” to our animations. At the end of the day all animations will be edited to the
final music video.

The workshop is free of charge.
Required material: Digital still camera with memory card and/or computer connection cable.
