EURANIM – video mapping workshop
The EURANIM international educational project was launched with the support of Creative Europe with the participation of the animation and the media design departments of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest (MOME – Hungary), Rencontres Audiovisuelles, Lille (France), The Animation Workshop (Denmark), HOWEST (Belgium), Plymouth College of Art (UK), and Turku University of Applied Science (Finland).
The partner institutes developed a three-year educational program exploring a novel, innovative use of animation, while presenting progressive technical possibilities. The project launches a series of video mapping trainings in the form of one-week modules taking place at four different universities and an international festival. Each module ends with a cultural event presenting the results of the given module to the profession, as well as to a wider audience.
The project aims at helping fresh graduates of animation and audiovisual schools to launch their career by offering the possibility to use their tolls and knowledge in a progressive, innovative way.
On the vimeo channel of EURANIM, you can watch a wide range of videos about the international workshop.
EURANIM runs for three academic years, from 1st June 2015 till 1st September 2018 and consists of a series of workshops and events, that MOME and KISKAKAS Animation Film Days will first host in the April of 2016, welcoming students and experts from the five participating countries. The Budapest workshop also ended with a spectacular open event in downtown Budapest, in the framework of the Kiskakas Animation Celebration organised each year by MOME Anim.
During the first year of the project, at the September 2015 workshop in Lille, MOME was represented by Dániel Cseh, media design and Zénó Mira, animation student. The projects reflected on the topic, the Museum of the 23rd Century volt.
This was followed in January 2016, when Balázs Tóth and Melinda Kádár represented MOME in Belgium, Kortrijk, where exciting interior design video mapping works were created and presented.
In April 2016, MOME hosted the next workshop of the project, where 13 of the participants included two animation and two media design students from us: Anna Tőkés, Márton Tőkés, Juli Tudisco and Giuliano Lo Faro. The venue of the Budapest workshop was Tesla, where the video mapping project prepared for the interior facade of the building became the closing event of the Kiskakas Animation Celebration festival.
The last event of the year was in Viborg (Denmark) in September organized by The Animation Workshop where Kálmán Tarr and Hana Yamazaki attended from MOME and developed the video mapping showcase event for the Viborg Animation Festival.
In April of the next project year, MOME hosted again the EURANIM vide mapping Workshop where Orsi Hajba, Szandra Farkas and Pham Van Quan MOME Anim students attended, and the public could meet again with the team’s work, this time in the interior of Toldi Cinema.
The project continued with further workshops in Viborg and Kortrijk again and in Plymouth (UK), and also in the Fete de l’Anim festival in Lille, where MOME students developed video mapping showcase with many other European schools’ students. In 2016: Bence Hlavay and Márton Tőkés, in 2017: Bálint Halasi and Damjan Lazin, and 2018: Éva Darabos, Barnabás Nemes, Emese Fülöp, Vivien Horváth, Bettina Szremkó, Alexandra Szujó, László András Halák, Levente Juhász and Zsófi Tábor. The vide mapping projects created as a result of a couple of days of intense work were admired by the Lille audience on the facade of the Lille Opera House.
