Movie Cards is a unique workshop project based on idea of media artists. Artists are interested in the generation of a creative community and the relation between the society and media.

Experience using tangible interface

On the workshop, every participants are able to edit video easily. The system consists of the real cards made of paper. Each card is represented of a piece of video scene.

Creating new media

Participants could get the way of thinking creative and critical through the process of making video with others. The finished moving images would be a new alternative independent media. They are neither TV programs nor cinemas.

Aim of workshop

As a creative tool

It is a simple video editing tool and no need of any technical knowledges. It is useful for understanding and learning the expression of moving images.

As a educational material

It can be use for media study class. Students will become conscious of the force and effect of editing. They could understand daily visual media are edited with someone's intention.

As a guide

Moving image media are daily thing. But we can access them as only viewing. It was one-sided relationship. Now, we can really make moving images and become a alternative filmmaker.
