by students of The Animation Workshop at VIA University in Viborg, Denmark

Workshop led by Ezra Claytan Daniels

In March 2016, Ezra Claytan Daniels taught a two-week interactive comics workshop at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark. Using Panoply, Opertoon’s authoring tool for digital comics, Ezra worked with teams of students to create original short horror stories that adhered to the principles he laid out in his Digital Comics Manifesto. The finished stories are collected here. Welcome to Visions_1.
