Stop Motion Animation

Objects in Motion
Using everyday office and school supplies, students animate objects in new, silly, and imaginative ways.

Cut-Out Animation
A variety of pre-fashioned and cut-out materials will be used to create characters and sets. In small groups, using video capture techniques, students will be taken through the steps of creating a short story.


Students shape and mold characters with plasticine, and using stop-motion animation, will create short films in small groups. The plasticine is messy, and all kinds of fun!

Students get animated! Choreographed by the instructor, the class will glide, disappear and fly through the air. This is a great introduction to special effects and stop-motion animation.
