Stop Motion

Objective

After this lesson, students will be able to:

  • define and give examples of stop motion animation
  • create their own stop motion animation

Method

Your task is to create a short stop-motion film about any subject you like.
You may work in pairs or individually to complete this project. The outcome
should be as professional as possible. Familiarize yourself with recent
award-winning stop motion films to get an idea of the quality of work being
done. Also ensure that you pay close attention to the marking guide so you
know exactly what you need to do/include to gain maximum marks.

Your animation should be between 30 seconds to 1 minute long. You must include at least one character. It need not be a humanoid, in fact, it might be more interesting if you use an inanimate object instead, but overall you should be able to demonstrate a range of
animation principles and timing with your project.
