Join us for an exclusive animation workshop for children with Melbourne-based animator and artist Daniel Agdag. Daniel’s award-winning stop-motion film Lost Property Office demonstrates his remarkable skill as a craftsman and filmmaker.
In this two-hour program, Daniel will introduce children to simple wire puppet making and then guide them through animating these objects with a basic stop-motion activity.
You are welcome to bring food and drink as refreshments are not included. Meet at the Information Desk.
Daniel Agdag is an Australian artist and filmmaker. He began his studies in fine art before turning his hand to film-making. He received his Masters in Film and Television at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2008.
Agdag is a triple Dendy Award winner at the Sydney Film Festival, as well as winner of the prestigious AFI / AACTA Award in 2017. His film Lost Property Office (2017) was shortlisted for the Academy Award for Best Short Animation.
In addition to film-making, Agdag creates and exhibits mesmerisingly delicate works made from cardboard. His works can be found in collections worldwide including one of his most ambitious private commissions for Hermès in Paris.
