Learn how to create a âmini movieâ with stop motion animation. This technique relies on physically manipulating an object to make it appear as if it moves on its own. We will be focusing on developing a script as well as designing an interesting stop motion set. Students are asked to bring a digital still camera. VAI will supply the computer and software. Please contact the office prior to enrolling if you do not have or are not able to borrow a digital camera. (Note: Smart phone cameras are acceptable; however, digital cameras that can be placed on a tripod are preferred). 15 weeks.
