Cut Out Animation
A variety of pre-fashioned and cut out materials will be used to create characters and sets. In small groups, using video capture techniques, students will be taken through the steps of creating a short story.
Students get animated! Choreographed by the instructor, the class will glide, disappear and fly through the air. This is a great introduction to special effects and stop motion animation.
Objects in Motion
Using everyday office and school supplies, students will animate objects in new, silly, and imaginative ways.
