Stop motion is an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object or persona appear to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played all at once. Dolls with movable joints or clayfigures are often used in stop motion because they can be moved easily. Stop motion animation using plasticine is called clay animation or “clay-mation”. Not all stop motion requires figures or models; many stop motion films can involve using humans, household appliances and other things for comedic effect. Stop motion using objects is sometimes referred to as object animation.
Traditional animation (or classical animation, cel animation or hand-drawn animation) is an animation technique where each frame is drawn by hand. The technique was the dominant form of animation in cinema until the advent of computer animation.
Intro to Stop Motion and Hand Drawn Animation is a beginner’s guide to using these simple and fun technologies. Aspiring filmmakers and artists will learn how to accent film projects with moving images. The 90 minute class will focus on the basics of these two animation techniques. Students will use the software Adobe Premiere and Pixlr, a free version of Photoshop to make short animations. By the end of the class, students will have completed a small project highlighting their new knowledge and skills, and will be ready to continue exploring and expanding on what they have learned. Join the Bushwick Film Festival for the last of our winter workshops and learn how to be a better animator!
