Stop Motion Animation Assessment

Watch these videos for inspiration (I particularly like the human skateboard)

Then think about what you want to do.

Start by:

Forming a group of 2 to 3 people.

  • brainstorming ideas
  • creating a plot
  • Writing a storyline
  • consider what material to use which can include:
  1. Clay
  2. Plasticine
  3. Toys
  4. People
  •  Then borrow a camera and take pictures – lots of pictures
  • Put pictures into video editing program (preferably Premiere) but you can use Movie Maker.
  • Watch tutorials on Lynda.com on Premiere
