Wkshp: Stop Motion Animation

« Back to course listings


This class teaches the language and techniques of animation using stop motion. Stop motion is a hands-on immediate production technique which uses "straight-ahead" adjustments of the subject, allowing the artist to address fundamental problems of animation such as timing, staging, arcs, and performance. In this class we will experiment with animating found objects, cut out animation, simple puppets, and pixelation to represent animate and inanimate characters, and will produce exercises and projects output in digital Quicktime format.
