Moving Photo Remix


Learn to animate photos using Photoshop with artist Josh Hite

Session 2: Fri, Apr 5, 6pm-9pm


One extended subsidy for this workshop available:


Prerequisite: No experience necessary.


This two-day workshop is a fun and creative introduction to Photoshop. Learn how to animate still photos by using layers, the erase and stamp functions, and other super useful tricks.

Each session combines visual study of examples, group discussion,and hands-on experience.

Gain technical knowledge of Photoshop! Learn about local and international artists who manipulate photos and discuss the meaning and effect of the resulting images! Create photo remixes of your own!

During session 1, you’ll learn various techniques for removing and replacing portions of photographs for meaningful effect in order to produce 3 intriguing images. You can either bring in photos to use, find them online, or snap a few during the workshop.

Then for Session 2, you’ll learn how to use Photoshop to animate selected parts of your images. You’ll export them as GIF and MOV files so you can share them online!

Josh Hite works with video, animation, sound, and photography, often creating reorganized archives of particular spaces or behaviors, either through his own recordings or by appropriating content through sites like YouTube.  His practice leans towards an ethnography that acknowledges content and tactics for documentation as determinants of eventual form, rather than relying on art historical or cultural references as structural assistants.  Projects tend to query relationships between an experience and its location, the power dynamics at play, and the ways in which transitions and sequencing can seamlessly propel us through time.

Josh has shown his work in North and South America, Asia, Europe, and Australia.  He collaborates with Vancouver’s theatre and dance communities and is a member of Fight With a Stick Performance.  Josh has a BA in Philosophy, a MFA in Visual Art and teaches with the University of British Columbia and Emily Carr University of Art + Design.

VIVO Media Arts

VIVO MEDIA ARTS CENTRE, incorporated in 1973 as the Satellite Video Exchange Society (SVES), is Vancouver’s oldest media arts access centre. VIVO continues to fulfill its founding vision by directly supporting independent artists, community-based producers and activists to develop and exchange their skills in a supportive environment. Our members gather around the tools and material means of production to invent new understandings, new genres and new friendships. Reflecting both the diversity of contemporary technologies and the symbiotic communities that coalesce around new forms of knowledge and creativity, our programming fosters formal, aesthetic and critical approaches to media arts practice. VIVO builds an audience of makers, organizers and critics through artists in residence, lectures, workshops, performances, exhibitions and curatorial and archival research. As an integral artist run centre in Vancouver, our resources and facilities will continue to inform and influence engagement in all levels of media art investment.
