Stop-Motion Animation

Rising Grades 5 to 6

Use handcrafted figurines and scenery, household objects, and digital cameras to create a compelling story.

This introductory course covers the basics of creating stop-motion animation films from start to finish. The course provides an overview of photography, sound recording, and video editing as part of the filmmaking process.

Students use still cameras, audio recorders, and iMovie to create stop-motion animation films. These can be narrative (scripted) or experimental videos created from LEGO blocks, modeling clay, action figures, and other "found objects".
