Bring along your smartphone with either Gifinator (Android) or Stop Motion Studio (iOS) installed: both are free!
Be introduced to the art of stop frame animation and make a little message in class that you can use to promote yourself, send to your friends or even tell someone you think they are great for Valentines day!
We will have some Plasticine and heart shaped props and bits and bobs to animate but also feel free to bring a photo or a peronalised objects to bring to life and ‘wow’ that special someone.
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. Throughout the class we will also be touching on the principles of animation, to help keep your animation believable and appealing!
