Armed with an iPhone, Sharpies, correction fluid, and transparent sheets, Marty Cooper, a.k.a Hombre McSteez, considers himself a ‘reality dementer’ as he creates stop motion animation over real life scenes. Marty will be conducting a fun workshop full of drawing games, character design, and stop-motion techniques for kids to create their own ‘aug(de)mented realities’.

‘Aug-dementing Reality’ with Hombre McSteez

5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Marty Cooper, a storyboard artist by trade (working on projects like Ice Age and Angry Birds)  began his ‘Aug(de)mented Reality’ project five years ago, where he plays with ordinary situations by inserting fun and whacky cartoon characters with transparent plastic cells.

He draws each individual frame and uses his iPhone to capture photos before putting them together in short videos. More recently, he’s been working from a computer and experimenting with Gif stickers.
