RetrRox Malacca Experimental Animation Workshop by Rox Lee
Learn the tricks of the animation trade as Rox Lee takes participants through the process of translating handdrawn artworks into moving images. Held over two mornings, the workshop will see the elder statesman of the Philippine film industry share insights and techniques from more than a half-century's experience.
Expect an intensive and interactive session conducted in an intimate setting of no more than ten people. A diverse gamut of canvasses and instruments will come into the picture, including but not limited to pen, oil pastel, clay, paper, and cardboard. Owing to Rox's signature DIY style, the crux of the agenda is improvisation, limited only by the confines of one's imagination.
All workshop materials and tools will be provided. Curator and avid illustrator in his own right Gertjan Zuilhof will also be present to lend assistance.
About the instructor
Rox Lee is an animator, director, cartoonist, painter, and all-around rock star of Philippine cinema. First making his name with cult favourite comic strip Cesar Asar, he then made the foray into filmmaking where his influence is still most keenly felt today. His early works were done in Super 8mm film—divided between hand-drawn, scratchy works like The Great Smoke, and pixellated live-action pieces like Juan Gapang. Both are now considered classics of the independent film movement of the 1980s.
