Make inanimate objects come alive! No matter which type of animation you wish to pursue, learning traditional techniques is invaluable in order to gain new perspective and control over the art form. This workshop teaches the basics needed to be a traditional stop-motion animator using a variety of materials including cutout paper, clay and drawings. Emphasis is placed on skill acquisition and experimentation, as well as using emotion to drive movement. Student animators will use iPads and DSLR cameras along with iStopMotion to record their stop-motion shorts. The workshop will conclude with a film festival to screen students’ creations.

* All equipment will be provided for the students.


Space is limited. A maximum of 12 animators will be accepted.
