Stop-Motion Animation #1 (Mattie Rhodes Center)
June 12, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am
THIS WORKSHOP IS OFFERED EXCLUSIVELY TO KIDS AT THE MATTIE RHODES CENTER
Stop-motion animation is a fun way to capture your stories and entertain your friends and family. Many famous animators got their start creating stop-motion animation. This process involves posing characters in scenes and situations and photographing each stage of their movement to create animation that reveals their story. In this digiSTORY KC workshop, participants will work in teams of 2 or 3 to create an original story which they will animate through Claymation, LEGO® characters or other objects. They will photograph their character scenes against a Green Screen background using a laptop and webcam. They will add voiceovers, sound effects, music tracks, titles, credits and other features to provide multimedia interest. They will publish their animation to digiSTORY KC’s YouTube Channel where they can share their story with friends and family,
Session 1: Participants learn about animation and how it works. They create a flip book and a thaumatrope to see how static pictures appear to move in animation and video. They learn about frames and frame rates for animation and video. They learn digiSTORY KC’s story model and work with teammates to create an original story. They create a storyboard and script for that story. They learn how animators use animatics to plan for voiceovers and other multimedia to pace the image requirements for the story.
