Frooom! is an innovative educational and educational program for children and young people from 8 to 16 years, which introduces them to what they cannot see and understand by watching movies, TV series, music videos, computer games and web-media programs. Through an intensive process of game-like education and exploring, children learn about the nature of the film while experimenting with all that a film as we know it today was coming from: from Chinese Zoetropes, French Praxinoscopes, through Mannerist optical experiments, experimental animation of still photography and Camera Obscura, to computer software, advanced video and 3D mapping and digital technology.
