Animation Discovery: Speed up and Slow Down
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 2, you will learn how to make objects appear to speed up or slow down as the object moves across the screen. This is possible by either increasing or decreasing the spacing as you take pictures.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
