Stop motion animation (also called stop frame animation) is animation that is captured one frame at time, with physical objects that are moved between frames. When you play back the sequence of images rapidly, it creates the illusion of movement. The basic process of animation involves taking a photograph of your objects or characters, moving them slightly, and taking another photograph. When you play back the images consecutively, the objects or characters appear to move on their own. This workshop will cover the basics of stop motion animation, and children will create their own mini-movie using various objects. This is a STEAM program as it incorporates creativity, a bit of art, and storytelling with technology.
