This is a foundation class in Stop Motion Animation suitable for beginners ages 5-8 yrs. In the first few weeks of each semester, we will introduce students to Clay Animation, Sculpting techniques & the creation of simple clay characters. Design 3D worlds, lighting theory, matte painting + animation.
Midway we will explore storyboarding + advanced clay character sculpting techniques along with advanced animation movements (composition + camera movement). Moving on to abstract & unconventional animation techniques (using everyday objects, time-lapse drawing, improvisational) + finished animation.
In the final two weeks we will focus on exercises in recreation of a movie scene in stop motion and devising our final projects. Total Beginners are welcome in this class. No experience necessary!
