Stop-Motion Animation for Teens/Tweens
Students will learn about original stop-motion animation, and view examples of stop-motion throughout history up to modern applications. Students will learn basic techniques of animation, and will create their own animated characters out of modeling clay. We will come up with a basic concept, build a small-scale set, and begin animating frame-by-frame using digital cameras. On the last day of class, Kylie will help students compile their photographs digitally to make a short stop-motion animated film!
