Stop Motion Animation

Stop motion animation is a fun, unique, and creative way to make movies or short films. In this class we’ll make our own short films from scratch, including writing the story, making our own characters out of clay, filming, and editing! This enrichment gives students a unique opportunity to learn about stop motion animation, flex their creative muscle when developing a story, and create a finished product they can be proud of.
