Stop Motion Animation Class

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~THIS IS AN ONGOING CLASS AND MEETS DEC. 6th and 20th, Jan. 3rd, 17th and 31st, and Feb. 14th and 28th. If you cannot attend all dates, please contact Erin Robinson: erinr@derrypl.org~~~~~~~~~~~

This hands-on class teaches the step-by-step process of creating stop motion animation, from the making of flexible characters out of clay, all the way to the completion of a finished scene. Using more modern frame grabbing technology to capture images, students will be able to see their progress each day.

This program will be led by Tim Smyth. Tim is a professional stop motion animator who has animated on the TV shows “Celebrity Deathmatch,” “The P’J’s,” “Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas,” and “A Very Pentatonix Christmas,” as well as TV and Web spots like Visine, and KRE-O toys. Tim grew up (more or less) in Haverhill, Massachusetts, and was inspired to get into stop motion and filmmaking when he was very young, after a viewing of the 1933 film “King Kong.”

Stop Motion Animation Class

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~THIS IS AN ONGOING CLASS AND MEETS DEC. 6th and 20th, Jan. 3rd, 17th and 31st, and Feb. 14th and 28th. If you cannot attend all dates, please contact Erin Robinson: erinr@derrypl.org~~~~~~~~~~~

This hands-on class teaches the step-by-step process of creating stop motion animation, from the making of flexible characters out of clay, all the way to the completion of a finished scene. Using more modern frame grabbing technology to capture images, students will be able to see their progress each day.

This program will be led by Tim Smyth. Tim is a professional stop motion animator who has animated on the TV shows “Celebrity Deathmatch,” “The P’J’s,” “Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas,” and “A Very Pentatonix Christmas,” as well as TV and Web spots like Visine, and KRE-O toys. Tim grew up (more or less) in Haverhill, Massachusetts, and was inspired to get into stop motion and filmmaking when he was very young, after a viewing of the 1933 film “King Kong.”

Stop Motion Animation Class

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~THIS IS AN ONGOING CLASS AND MEETS DEC. 6th and 20th, Jan. 3rd, 17th and 31st, and Feb. 14th and 28th. If you cannot attend all dates, please contact Erin Robinson: erinr@derrypl.org~~~~~~~~~~~

This hands-on class teaches the step-by-step process of creating stop motion animation, from the making of flexible characters out of clay, all the way to the completion of a finished scene. Using more modern frame grabbing technology to capture images, students will be able to see their progress each day.

This program will be led by Tim Smyth. Tim is a professional stop motion animator who has animated on the TV shows “Celebrity Deathmatch,” “The P’J’s,” “Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas,” and “A Very Pentatonix Christmas,” as well as TV and Web spots like Visine, and KRE-O toys. Tim grew up (more or less) in Haverhill, Massachusetts, and was inspired to get into stop motion and filmmaking when he was very young, after a viewing of the 1933 film “King Kong.”
