This workshop explores Rotoscoping, an animation technique involving tracing frame-by-frame from recorded film or video. During the workshop we will provide footage and explore the pacing and framing of the technique through traditional animation.

Iveta Karpathyova is an illustrator, animator and educator (M.Des.) specializing on hand-drawn animation, portraits, watercolour and ink media. Her rotoscoping animations, presented at international film festivals and academic conferences, revolve around sports, dance and musical performances. A recent example of her work is the short film “Phases of Dance” (2017) which was entirely hand-drawn and animated with over 2,100 illustrations. Iveta has lived and freelanced as a commercial illustrator and graphic designer in Toronto, Paris, San Francisco and Montreal. Some of her clients include ESPN, L’Oréal, Holt Renfrew, World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Variety Magazine and Philips. More info available at
