In snowy conditions 40 teenagers took to the challenge and worked hard to finish the first two video workshops for video making and animation held in Romania as part of Stranger.
The first participants were 20 teenagers, ages 14 to 18, from Campulung Muscel, and 20 Hungarian young people from Miercurea Ciuc. Guided by art director Alexandru Buzea and mentor Raluca Spataru, the first group created a vast world of drawings and colours onto their white sheets of paper which will be made into animations. The second group, coordinated by video artist David Djinddjikhachvili, director Florin Kevorkian and TV producer Marius Csucs tell their stories in a one-minute film, concluding one week of training in script writing, story-board drawing, filming and editing. All films realised during the workshops will be entered into the StrangerFestival competition.
