Course Description
What goes on behind the scenes to bring to life the animated films we enjoy and love? Join award-winning animators and educators Jerrold Chong and Jia Lee in this hands-on introduction to stop-motion animation!

Participants will learn about developing well-rounded, interesting characters and explore how to convey a character’s personality through its physical features. Using materials like clay, art and craft supplies and everyday materials, they will bring their character design to life.

They will then try their hand at creating a simple stop-motion sequence using their smartphones, a free app and their creativity. Participants can continue to use this app after the session to further their exploration of stop-motion animation.

The session will end with a fun screening of everyone’s works. Participants will get to bring home their original characters, a basic stop-motion animation starter kit of materials, and their very own animated clip to share with their friends!

No prior experience is required and equipment and materials will be provided.
