I can apply learned skills in Animate CC and demonstrate a basic principle of animation to create the illusion of a ball bouncing across the stage

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.
