The tours and workshops must be booked in advance through the Museum Service Berlin.

 


Children’s Tour: Animated Films and Techniques

What makes images on television and in the cinema move? When did images start talking and what animation techniques were first used? During a guided tour through the permanent exhibition, young visitors are given the answers to these and countless other questions related to cartoons and animation techniques.

The tour begins with the pioneers of German film. It then moves through the early years of German cinema, and explains the beginnings of sound film. How images are manually and individually animated is demonstrated by silent film classics like METROPOLIS.

Mission to Animation! Children’s Workshop on Animated Film

UFOs orbit distant planets, astronauts explore foreign galaxies, and aliens make themselves at home on our planet – science-fiction films offer highly imaginative adventures for both young and old. The special exhibition Things to Come delivers a wealth of visual inspiration for creating one’s own “galactic” animated film clips. After gathering initial ideas through a short visit to the exhibition, participants develop their stories and learn the processes involved for turning them into cinematic works. In this workshop animated films are produced two-dimensionally using stop motion, frame-by-frame techniques with the help of a light box and a digital camera.
