Stop motion animation is an art form that captures images and objects, one frame at a time, which you design and move in storytelling fashion. When you play back your animated images, it creates the illusion of a moving story. In this online program, you will learn the basics of how to use stop-motion animation as a medium for artistic expression. You will draw, build and animate your own creations and learn how to use various objects to create animated stories. You will then learn how to use editing and sound design to enhance your animations and tell fun stories.
