Stop Motion Animation

Standard Session

Whether you are a beginner or have done stop motion before, come along to this session to develop your stop-motion skills! In this course you will learn how to make your own LEGO stop-motion animated movie. We will cover basic film-making principles, using iStopMotion and LEGO specific techniques used in producing animations that stretch the imagination. If you already know this stuff, great! The class time is for you to make a film, or to continue work on one with an experienced tutor on hand to answer questions and help you polish your film! This class is 90 minutes long—plenty of time to make a 10-20 second long animation! Did you know that means taking 300 photos? We also email out a link to download your file so you can show it off!

Extended Session

Are you already a stop-motion enthusiast with movie making experience, or a beginner who thinks their movie ideas are too grand to be confined to a 90 minute session? Come to our two and a half hour stop-motion expansion sessions where will have more time to plan your movie, shoot a great animated story, and then import your animation into iMovie to add sound effects, music and credits. This expansion session will benefit beginner, intermediate and advanced movie makers who are interested in developing their storytelling and filming skills further. Beginners will first be taught the basics of film-making principles, storyboarding and LEGO specific techniques before they unleash their imaginations onto their movie making.
