Stop Motion Animation

As the first session of stop motion animation comes to a close, I am thrilled to share some of the projects we have worked on over the past 10 weeks.

We started by making what is arguably the most simple kind of animation, a flip book.

Week two, we made our own zoetropes. The first, a template, based off of Eadweard Muybridge’s famous horse images. The second, a design of each student’s choosing.

Week three, we used our iPads and the app “Stop Motion Studio,” to create our first animations. Students worked in two groups to create films about breakfast, using cut paper.

And here are some other highlights from the class:
