Stop motion (also known as stop action) is a frame by frame animation technique in which a sequence of individually photographed frames creates the illusion of movement. The stop between frames tricks the brain into reading the images as continuous. From concept to completion, each student will be guided through the process of creating an original stop motion animation sequence. As a class, we will look and discuss an array of historical and contemporary examples of stop motion techniques pioneered by: Lotte Reninger, Wadysaw Starewicz, Caroline Leaf, Frank and Caroline Mouris,Terry Gilliam, Kelly Sears and others. Each student will produce an original 30 second stop motion cut-out/collage constructed tactically with found and printed materials.
Materials: Camera phone cleared of photos, flash drive to save your .mov file, and printed matter to be used in your collage (optional). Instructor will provide all collage materials and all other materials.
