Bring along your smartphone with either Gifinator (Android) or Stop Motion Studio (iOS) installed: both are free! And if you have one, bring a Lego minifig to animate with.
Have you ever wanted to make your own animated films? Bring a favourite toy or a clay model to life? This class will cover everything you need to get started making stop motion animated films using a surprisingly simple setup.
We will find out how stop motion films are made, and how we can use our smartphones to mimic a stop motion studio. Once we have our camera set up, we will be using Plasticine models (or bring your own Lego minifig!) and creating miniature animation films that you can save and share with your friends. Throughout the class we will also be touching on the principles of animation, to help keep your animation believable and appealing!
Jarrod has been working in animated feature films for the past 5 years, on projects such as Happy Feet, The Lego Movie, Spongebob Squarepants and Ted 2. Loving any and all things animated, you can find him on gifbros.com or front-row-center at the latest animated movie.
