Animation Nation

One of our favourite workshops this year was the opportunity to create stop motion animations. This process took a number of different steps to complete.




Stage 1) Planning our animation on a storyboard template. In our groups, we thought carefully about the short animation story we wanted to create. We then planned it in our groups onto a story board to help keep us focused throughout the creation process.





Stage 2) Create our plasticine models. These included characters, props or objects needed for the animation.






Stage 3) Create the animation! This involved us taking multiple pictures of our models in very slightly different positions to create the impression of movement. We could choose from a range of different backgrounds, floors, sound effects and music.
