Animation Discovery: Setup and Frame Rates

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 eight activities, your confidence will build so that you can direct your very own mini-movie and bring your stories to life. In activity 1, you will learn how to set up an animation workspace and create a DotBot character to explore frame speed and how to apply this concept to your animation. 

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 are an afterschool director or practitioner, we can also help offer tips regarding the setup of your classroom for this program. Green Mouse Academy is available Monday-Thursday from 12:00-1:00 pm for live help at or by calling 561-630-6549.  


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