Animation Discovery: Sneeze, Shake & Quiver

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 5, you will learn how to use three different techniques such as sneeze, shake, and quiver. These techniques will help give your DotBot some personality. You will also learn the timing and spacing for a sneeze animation. Using the windup, speeding-up, follow-through, and slowing-down spacing from previous lessons.
