Create and animate your story using only a smartphone! This workshop is a fun way to understand the basics of moviemaking with readily available digital tools. Participants will work through hands-on activities designed to help them plan fun stop-motion projects for their classroom, and will learn about stop-motion techniques including claymation, cutouts, pixillation, and more. A handout with free resources and apps, plus links to example videos, will be included.
Grades 4 - 10
You will need a smartphone with a working camera and the free Stop Motion Studio app installed. It may also be helpful to collect a few items you can use in your practice animation (e.g. rocks, plants, Legos, small household objects).
