In this virtual program, you will learn the basics of how to tell unique, personal stories using stop motion and hand drawn animation. You will create and use sound effects, as well as narration, and learn how to properly edit your creation to build a compelling story that will document your summer activities.
In this first class, we will learn the basics of movement in animation by creating short flipbooks about the environment around us.
Today, we will learn how to use the Stop Motion app, as well as the remote and tripod, while animating objects from nature. We will learn the basics of replacement animation to simulate movement.
This week, we will learn how to make time lapses with the Stop Motion app. We will also see how to tell autobiographical stories through narration and sound effects.
In this last class, we will put together all that we have worked on throughout the course including narration, sound effects, and music, to show our friends and family what we did throughout the program.
