Stop-Motion Animation / Stop-Frame Animation / Pixelation: These are animation techniques used to manipulate a motionless object into appearing to move on its own. Join us for a 2-day workshop demonstrating the different methods and techniques used in this rich and inventive animation medium.
The first day of the workshop will be a hands-on experience; participants will work in groups to design a character, build a set, and shoot and animate a scene. The second portion of the workshop will touch on some of the available stop-motion animation software tools, and how they can be used. It will cover the post-production involved, from file management, to creating a continuous sequence, editing shots together into a story, and finally outputting your group projects.
Note: Camera and all equipment will be provided for this workshop. Scenes & props will be provided, but if you have a specific story to be animated please feel free to bring the miniatures, puppets, or set you require.
