Stop-Motion is an animation technique used to manipulate a motionless object into appearing to move on its own.
Join us for a workshop focused on employing a 2D technique that can be used in the creation of short animations, and learn the technical aspects and limitations to animating in stop-motion. This workshop will provide hands-on experience, and participants will work in groups to design a character, create a set, and animate a scene. It will also cover post-production, including adding sound and/or narration to the film, creating a continuous sequence, editing shots together into a story, and outputting your final animation. This workshop will use iPad’s with Stop Motion Studio software, with the final edit completed in FCPX software.
Note: All iPad’s, software, and equipment for this workshop will be provided.
