STOP FRAME ANIMATION
TUESDAY 26TH MAY 2015 11am - 3pm
Create a film in a day, marrying up your creativity with your computer skills. Alan Harrison normally teaches stop frame techniques as an after-school club over eight weeks so be prepared for the speeded up version!
Working in groups of two or three, you start with blocks of plasticine, create your characters, come up with a storyline and take photos for the film. Stop frame animation gives the filmaker's imagination far more freedom than any live action filming. Using green screen technology we add titles, credits, music and sound effects, before finishing off with a gala presentation. If you have a toy that you might like to include as a prop, please bring it along.
All equipment is provided, no need to bring laptops. All you need to bring is a memory stick if you would like to take your film home with you.
