Making an animation movie... with his cell phone ! As surprising as it may seem, these small objects that we have in our pockets, if used in the right way, can enable us to create movies so much more professional than we imagine. Come to find out, and to realize, in an afternoon, a cartoon with your phone. We conclude with a projection of your films. And then walk away with your movie !
If your phone does not film, bring a camera. And if you have nothing to shoot, we will have everything you need.
