Bring along your smartphone with either Gifinator (Android) or Stop Motion Studio (iOS) installed: both are free!
Want to do something different this year with your Christmas Messages? Ditch the cardboard, save the trees and make a bespoke Christmas themed stop frame animation. Perfect to learn the basics of animation. We will have some Christmas props and bits and bobs bit also feel free to 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 and creating miniature animation films that you can save and share with your friends at Christmas. Throughout the class we will also be touching on the principles of animation, to help keep your animation believable and appealing!
