Animation Discovery: Choice, Throw & In-Between Blur

Animation Discovery uses techniques and recipes from Animating Kids to teach you how to create Stop Motion Animation videos. You will explore the process behind storytelling and learn core ingredients such as acting, character design, camera position, and more. Over the course of 8 activities, your confidence will build so that you can direct your very own mini-movie and bring your stories to life. In Activity 6, you will learn new techniques on how to build anticipation, signaling that something is about to happen. Practicing refining movement while giving the audience visual cues that something is about to happen and believable, will take your animation stories to the next level.


An instructor from Green Mouse Academy will be on-hand and ready to help with anything you need during the posted activities. We will be able to answer any questions and/or help with the set-up of your mobile device. If you’re an Afterschool Director or Practitioner, we can also help offer tips regarding the setup of your classroom for this program. We are available Monday-Thursday from 12:00-1:00 pm for live help at or by calling our office at 561-630-6549.


In order to complete these activities, be sure to download the free app – “Stop Motion Studio” to your mobile device, and print these handouts.
